Water consumption

We recognise the importance of water conservation measures and have significantly reduced our water consumption levels by implementing the following initiatives:

  • replacing all single flush toilets with dual flush systems, saving us an estimated 2.5 million litres a year
  • capturing and reusing stale water output by air conditioners for irrigation purposes
  • installation of a 16 mega litre retention basin to capture stormwater overflow for irrigation use
  • stormwater collection for use in maintaining the Japanese Gardens Lake
  • re-plumbing buildings to be operational on 100% harvested rainwater.
