We aim to identify exactly how much water we use and which processes use the most. To do this, we install water meters on most of our sites. The meters monitor usage via wireless computer technology, which works via a GPRS on a cloud server. Our aim is to use the information to help us reduce the amount of potable water we use.
We have targeted a number of areas for improvement to help us realise our water consumption ambitions, including: recycling water on site, harvesting rainwater, using water from rivers and waterless wheel washes.
