Water at Solway

At Solway our aim is to promote actions which will reduce the school’s overall water consumption and raise appreciation of water as a valuable resource. To educate the whole school community on ways to reduce indoor and outdoor water usage.

The objectives of the Water Working Group are:

§ To reduce the costs of water consumption within our school

§ To use resources and equipment as efficiently as possible

§ To choose the most effective means of conserving water, ie, installation of water tanks; grey water system and dual flush cisterns.

§ To involve students and staff in the planning of water conservation initiatives

To help achieve our objectives, we have undertaken the following:

§ 50,000 litre water tank installed and water now used for dual flush cisterns (installed in 2008)

§ School Water Audit undertaken (2009)

§ 25,000 litre water tank installed (2009)

§ Installation of 4 new water efficient drinking fountains/bubblers (2011)

§ “Turn off Taps/Save Water” signage created and installed by students throughout the school

§ On-going Environment & Sustainability educational program to include Water Conservation

§ Regular cross school excursions/incursions relating to Environment/Sustainability to include Water Conservation

§ On-going provision of useful water saving tips in the School weekly Newsletter
