Household water usage

Premier John Brumby has released figures indicating Victoria’s most water efficient towns. Sunbury and Macedon are the most efficient using 145 litres per person per day. Ballarat (147) and Melbourne (154) were the next most efficient. Melbourne’s usage is just under the Target 155 strategy launched by Water Minister Tim Holding. However, analysis of the figures by The Age reveals that “as regional areas and towns have come off water restrictions, household water usage rose in 17 of 24 regional or outer urban areas, fell in six areas and remained the same in one”.
