  • A message from Living Water Smart

    Flix in the Wet Partner, 2016-2018

    Imagine our dam was a teapot. It fills up when it rains but just like each cup of tea we have, our household water use lowers our supply.

    Don’t let the high dam levels fool you this wet – turn off your irrigation to keep living water smart. More HERE
