Aitken College Water Initiatives

As our school did not have access to town water when it was built 10 years ago we have a huge number of water tanks. All drinking water is supplied by rainwater. We also collect all our own black and grey water for processing on the site.

We have a small intermittent creek (Brodies Creek) running through our property. We regularly sample the creek water to look for aquatic plants and animals as a way of monitoring the health of the waterway. We have also started riparian revegetation with plants received from the Hume Council and Brite Industries.

We have two windmills which can access bore water if the water does not need to be potable.

We have elected environmental captains from all of our classes from Year 2 to Year 12.

We are running Green Week in the last week of Term 3, 2008.
