Water Basic measures

What are the Basic Measures?

Basic measures include action plans for seeking to reduce water use, and more efficient use of water. The basic measure is having a water resource management plan – which would identify actions taken to reduce the amount of water used at the event by caterers and visitors. It would also identify how public water supply would be managed in order to conserve the resource.

Basic measures would include:

  • A Water Use and Management Plan that considers the drivers of water use, and management options to reduce water use. This may be part of a wider resource management plan. Below are several resources which can assist event organisers when developing a plan to reduce water use at their event.
