All Gold Coast schools have now been installed with smart loggers generating daily water consumption data that can aid in better water use understanding, leak identification and irrigation efficiency improvements.

Following a trail with 30 schools in 2018; we now have 75% of all Gold Coast schools who have responded the invitation to access this water data; meaning three quarters of all Gold Coast schools are engaging with the portal. These schools receive weekly water use summary emails that enable water use tracking, and can provide alerts to any high use / water leaks onsite.

Correspondingly leaks have now been reduced by 50% across all Gold Coast schools, translating to tens of thousands of dollars saved in school water bills! What an achievement to be proud of!
