Hobsons Bay Showerhead Exchange Program

October 17, 2007

Every household is eligible to exchange two showerheads, which are valued at $US 58 ($AUS 65) each.

Residents can save up to 20,000 litres of water per household per year, and save approximately $US134 ($AUS 150) a year in water bills by changing their old showerhead to a water efficient one.

ICLEI has an international freshwater Water Campaign that aims to build the capacity of local governments to reduce water consumption and improve local water quality. In Australia, the Campaign is delivered in collaboration with the Australian Government, the Government of Western Australia, City West Water, South East Water, Yarra Valley Water and the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board.  Hobsons Bay is one of the 100 participants presently in the Campaign.  For more information on ICLEI’s Water Campaign in Australia, please visit www.iclei.org/index.php?id=water_home.

Hobsons Bay is one of 105 local governments in Australia that are currently Members of ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability.   For more information on ICLEI and its activities in the Oceania Region, please visit www.iclei.org/oceania.
