Victorian residents and businesses receive extended water rebates

July 06, 2012

Victorian household and small businesses are set to receive financial relief with the government's extension of state-wide water rebates.

Peter Walsh, minister for water, said the government initiative - Living Victoria Water Rebate Program - had extended rebates on household products such as rainwater tanks to benefit more Victorians in residential property.

"By installing water efficient products, organisations and households can reduce their reliance on drinking water and better manage their ongoing operating costs by using alternative water resources," he commented.

Under the improved plan, which encourages the use of sustainable water sources, small businesses will also benefit with greater allowances to maximise cost savings.

"As we plan for a future with more people and an unpredictable environment, we need to identify solutions for how best to use and manage the water we have, which is an objective of our Living Melbourne, Living Victoria initiative," Mr Walsh explained.

Extensions applicable to small businesses include increased rebates on rainwater tank, toilet and laundry facilities, and will allow companies to maximise their water savings with financial incentives.
