Tanks for saving water

ANOTHER season is upon us and winter sports like AFL, rugby and soccer have all kicked off.

While there's been plenty of rain lately, water remains a big priority to ensure winter sports grounds stay in the best possible condition.

Students can help their school sporting teams and save water by taking part in the BlueScope Tank a Day Challenge.

The challenge aims to help primary schools kickstart their water conservation programs, while teaching young Australians about the water cycle and the importance of saving water.

“Through the challenge students can help to forge a better environment for their sporting teams, learn how to develop improved water saving practices and protect their school facilities and the wider community,” said Andrew Cropp, BlueScope Water Regional Manager in NSW.

The Tank a Day Challenge offers a rainwater tank to a primary school in Australia for every school day of the year. That's 200 rainwater tanks!

BlueScope is calling out to primary schools across Australia to demonstrate their commitment to conserving water by partnering with them on this challenge.

Northgate State School in Queensland was so inspired by its tank that it has purchased a further two rainwater tanks and is on track to achieve complete independence from the mains-water system by September of this year.
