Install a rainwater tank at your home and start saving
The Rous County Council Rainwater Tank Rebate Program is available to eligible residential town water customers in the Lismore Local Government Area who wish to reduce their consumption of town water by installing a rainwater tank. At a household level installing a rainwater tank means you save money by reducing your water bills. Collectively reducing our water use will also help delay and downsize expensive new water sources which means as a community we all benefit. Rebates up to $2170 are available.
Guidelines have been developed to assist you through the process of purchasing and installing a rainwater tank link. Once you have read the guidelines for your Council it is as simple as downloading a rainwater tank application form. To find out more visit Rous County Council's website or phone Rous County Council’s Water Sustainability Officer on (02) 6623 3800.
Everyday Water Saving Measures to help save water
Lismore City Council and Rous County Council are working together to secure our region's precious water supply. You can help us save water by introducing some simple Everyday Water Saving Measures at your home or business:
- Consider fitting your hand-held hoses with an on/off nozzle. Trigger nozzles are preferred;
- Wash your vehicles and boats on the lawn or where the water will run off onto the lawn or garden;
- Water between 6am and 10am and between 3pm and 10pm.
Thank you for being water efficient and helping us to secure our region's precious water supply.
