Today, Westernport Water announced their Recycled Water Grant Program, which aims to build resilience of the community by enabling increased access to alternative water supplies.
The grant program is open from 1 July to 12 August 2016. Westernport Water’s Managing Director, Peter Quigley said “The Recycled Water Grant Program is designed to help business and not for profit organisations invest in connecting to the existing recycled water network on Phillip Island.”
“We encourage applications for projects that are able to deliver water savings, support economic growth and help customers and the community prepare for climate variability,” said Peter.
The grant can be claimed for 75% of the cost of connection, up to a maximum sum of $10,000. To be eligible for grant support, the applicant must be a customer of Westernport Water and be within proximity to the existing recycled water network.
Applications will be assessed on an individual basis against the grant criteria. More information on the Recycled Water Grant Program can be found at www.westernportwater.com.au/recycled-water-grant-program
