Local businesses benefit from grant funding

Grant funding of up to $5,000 is available for small business for a limited time thanks to the Living Victoria Small Business Grants Program. Find out more!

Local businesses looking for a competitive edge have committed to undertake innovative water projects with potential for significant water and cost savings, thanks to funding support from the Living Victoria Small Business Grants program.
With grant assistance of up to $5,000 towards water efficiency projects, small businesses now have the financial support to improve and modernise their practices, progressing towards sustainable, efficient and low cost alternatives.
Many local farmers have been successful in their application for funding to complete successful projects including connection to Class A recycled water, constructing bores, installing tanks, monitoring and leak detection systems and increasing the capacity and distribution of localised networks.
Recreation & accommodation providers are also significant water users, especially in popular tourism locations like ours. Experience in the hospitality sector is showing that conserving water will not only save you money, it may also provide that important marketing advantage.
This is the last chance for businesses to take advantage of available funding.  If you think your business could benefit from saving water please get in contact with our Water Program Coordinator now.
Congratulations to the following businesses for their commitment to reduce their impact on our local drinking water supplies. Cleeland Pastoral Co., RS&A Davie, Cowes Childcare Centre, Phillip Island Golf Club, Woolamai Beach Hideaway, Rose Boys Pty Ltd, Richard Davie, Gullaren Partners, Karville Pty Ltd, Westley Investments, and the Phillip Island Caravan Park.
Final round of grant applications need to be received at Westernport Water by 29th of November 2013. Please contact Westernport Water’s Water Program Coordinator on 5956 4187 to discuss how your business can save you money and water.
