Is your Child Care Centre losing water?
The Central Coast has over 100 child care centres and each of these use large amounts of water in their day to day operations. Receiving a water notice provides your center with information about how much water you have used and the costs, but it doesn’t provide you with any temporal data or identify leaks and wastage. Understanding how your centre uses water has multiple benefits for the community, environment, and your finances. Has your centre ever considered how it can reduce its water use?
