Water capture and reuse

When it rains in the city, water collects on sealed surfaces and flows into the drains and out to our waterways and bays.

In fact, more water falls on Melbourne every year than we need to irrigate our green spaces. This water is a valuable resource that can be used to keep our parks, gardens and trees healthy. Water collection systems, such as stormwater harvesting and rainwater harvesting, are an important tool in sustainable water management. Read about some of the City of Melbourne’s water collection systems in the case studies below.
