Sustainable Water Partner Program

The Sustainable Water Partner Program can provide your business with a rebate to save water. Saving water is important for the future of our community, and will help delay and downsize new water sources, which means we all benefit.

The Big 4 Ballina Headlands Holiday Park team
The Big 4 Ballina Headlands Holiday Park achieved significant water savings by completing several water saving projects over a three year period.

The program is designed to help your business to:

  • improve water saving
  • save money by reducing your water, sewage, liquid trade waste and energy bills
  • receive recognition for your achievements and promote your sustainability edge.

There are three steps in the Sustainable Water Partner Program

Step 1 - Identify water saving projects through a water saving plan.
Step 2 - Implement your water saving projects and save money.
Step 3 - Become a sustainable water partner and have your achievements recognised.
