Make a Pledge

Your Voice. Your Pledge.

Water is a precious resource, and like all the things we love in life, we want to protect and treasure it. We can all work together to save our water, so we hope that you would join us in making and sharing your pledge to save water.

It’s the little things we do in our homes and gardens that can make a big difference, like by pledging to shower for just 1 minute less a day, we could all save our region 4 million litres of precious drinking water. Pledging to wait for a full load to do your washing could save you 15,000 litres of water a year. Using a 3 star WELS rated shower head could save you 50 litres of water for every shower, that’s the equivalent of 20,000 litres of water a year.

Your pledge could make a huge difference to our region’s water future.

Make your pledge in the Forum section below. Together we can. Let's love our water together.

Conservation and our Community - Message from Jim Bentley, Managing Director

Unprecedented growth leads us to Love Water more

This last September, our dams were at their lowest levels leading into summer in 14 years, but I’m pleased to say that recent rain has restored our storage levels to average conditions for this time of year.

While our storages may have recovered for now, we know that other areas including our Upper Hunter neighbours, continue to experience some of the worst drought conditions in the state. Since August, Hunter Water has been providing drinking water to properties most in need across the Upper Hunter. With assistance from Newcastle and Lake Macquarie City Councils, we have transported 1.25 million litres of water to more than 80 properties which are not connected to a town supply and need to top up their rainwater tanks.

It’s important we are water wise all year round – not just in response to conditions or circumstances. Our region is growing and developing at a rapid rate and we all have our part to play in ensuring enough water for our children and grandchildren. Valuing our precious resource means working together as a community to understand how we can lower our water use permanently.

My thanks to all for the measures you are taking in your work and at home to conserve water and make every drop count. Whether it be taking shorter showers, avoiding watering the garden during the hottest part of the day or choosing to buy water efficient appliances; small changes can make a big difference. Taking action to learn how to be more water wise is the first step towards creating lasting, meaningful change so I’m really encouraged to see the community embracing our Love Water message.
