The driest continent on Earth other than Antarctica should have its act together on water, don’t you agree?
Well despite our obvious failures, in some ways,we do and KISSS (Kapillary Irrigation Sub-Surface System is one of those areas where we have wins. The system can save at least half the water needed for irrigation and SCRAP has worked with the company to install it in several school fields over the years.
Another key way to win at water conservation is to have staff and students complete a Water Audit (service available through SCRAP) and to install water saving devices like rainwater tanks, toilet connections to tanks, grey water recovery, dual flush cisterns, restricted flow taps and of course changing the mindset of people regarding water use.
