Recycled Water at The Gables

Creating a sustainable future

Did you you know that at Stockland The Gables, we have signed up for the future with a renewable water source for our community?
 

Sustainability is a key pillar in our communities and we are excited that current and future residents have access to a renewable water source.

Altogether who are a leading private utility, installed a system that reuses wastewater through its local sustainable water network, providing homes with drought-resilient and environmentally friendly sources of water to keep gardens and local parks green all year.

We are wanting to create a sustainable future and without recycled water systems, homes and communities pump millions of litres of wastewater effluent out to sea and into inland waterways every year. This waste receives minimal treatment before it is pumped into our oceans and seas, and sadly often reappears as pollution on our beaches and in waterways after storms or tides. Wastewater is also sometimes incinerated, creating another kind of pollution — CO2 or carbon emissions.

The more communities and households can reuse their waste, the more we can improve our environment and secure a sustainable future. There are many key benefits of using recycled water!

Here’s what we’re doing at The Gables

Saving drinking water

At The Gables residents are saving up to 70% of their drinking water, which also means saving on your water usage bill!

 

 

Saving community water supplies

These individual household and community savings also preserve drinking water supplies, enabling this water to be funnelled to where it’s most needed — especially during droughts and for river system regeneration. By using recycled water, we're all doing our bit to keep drinking water supplies at secure levels.

 

Reducing costs

BASIX requires all new homes to be built to water-efficiency standards, either with a rainwater tank or water recycling systems. Altogether's sustainable water networks at The Gables replace the need for installing rainwater tanks, and are approved by BASIX, making them a cost-efficient and sustainable solution.

 

Building resilience

Recycled water can be depended on all year round — in recent droughts, through recycled water at The Gables, residents were still able to water their lawns and wash their cars long after drinking water restrictions left other communities brown and dusty.

Using recycled water also preserves public water supplies, which can then be used more effectively for essential purposes such as drinking, cleaning and showering.

Improving river systems

Recycled water frees up drinking water supplies, which can then be used to improve environmental flows. For example, if water supply levels remain high in the Warragamba Dam, they can improve environmental flows into the Hawkesbury and Nepean Rivers. The more communities use recycled water, the more water can feed into our precious river systems across Sydney and NSW.
