Email Link   Consumption - Target 160L

The Tweed will need an additional water supply by 2026 to meet forecast demand. While Council has a project to raise the wall of Clarrie Hall Dam by 2026 to secure a water supply to 2046, it’s equally important to save water and make our resources last as long as possible.

Achieving Target 160L (160 litres per person a day) is everyone’s responsibility.

Tweed residents reduced their water consumption by 22 per cent from 230L a day in 2003 to 179L a day in 2013 under Council’s Target 180L campaign.

However, since then consumption has risen again, prompting Council to renew its efforts through a Target 160L campaign.

160L a day is achievable, read our Water Saving Tips.
