WaterMAP for high-flow non-residential users
The Victorian Governement requires all major non-residential water users that consume 10 megalitres (ML) a year or more of a water from an urban water supply to improve their water efficiency through the preparation and implementation of their own water Management Action Plan (waterMAP).
Eligible customers include commercial and industrial institutions, local council sites, hospitals, schools and primary industries using urban supplies, as well as community groups and commercially operated residential style properties classified as non-residential under the Victorian Planning Provisions, using 10ML a year or more.
All waterMAP customers must annually report to Westernport Water on the implementation of their waterMAP and water savings and review their waterMAP at the request of the Corporation.

Easy check for water leaks
The simple way to check for water leaks is by reading the water meter at night after the last use. Check the meter again in the morning before household use resumes. This will provide a gauge for comparison. If the reading has changed, and the meter is still ticking, you may have a leak somewhere that needs attention. Call your plumber.

Before filling new pools/spas (with a capacity of 2000 litres or more), a water conservation plan that details water conservation measures must be lodged with, and approved by, Westernport Water. A water conservation plan and exemption restriction application form (53.51 KB) is available or you can contact the customer service team on 1300 720 711 for a copy. The plan must show that the volume of water needed to fill the pool or spa will be, or has been, offset by water saved around the home.
New pools or spas that hold less than 2000 litres of water can be filled without a water conservation plan, and previously filled pools or spas of any size may be topped up by any means at any time.
