The development and implementation of WEMPs in businesses across the Hunter will play an important role in realising water savings across our community. Businesses proactive in reducing their water usage will find they are also likely to save money on usage charges and energy costs.
We are working with our major and large business customers who use more than 10ML of water per annum to prepare and implement WEMPs.
However, we're encouraging small to medium sized businesses, such as cafes, restaurants, offices, hairdressers and salons, landscapers, nurseries and schools who generally use under 10ML of water per annum, to complete a WEMP using the form below.
Once you have completed this form your WEMP is registered with Hunter Water. You will then receive an email from Hunter Water confirming the actions you have committed to undertake and the items that will comprise your WEMP.
Please note: If the drought progresses, under Level 2 water restrictions all businesses <10ML will be required to prepare a WEMP. Should Level 3 water restrictions be introduced, these actions will become enforceable. Hunter Water will provide reasonable notice prior to attending your business to review the implementation of your business' WEMP initiatives.
