Shared bore trial a water saver for neighbours

Shared bore trial a water saver for neighbours

Last month Catalina resident Linda Hull was the first owner to have her front landscaping installed under the scheme.

‘It’s great ” I had a bore at my previous house and I’m very happy to have it again,’ Ms Hull said.

The trial scheme will see 21 garden bores and associated pipe work worth about $250,000 installed to service 72 homes, free of charge.

Satterley Property Group chief executive Nigel Satterley said the innovation meant home owners could have healthy, green gardens while saving money on water use and conserving scheme water.

The developer also offered residents front landscaping with water-wise plants and a cash rebate if they installed solar panels. Mr Satterley said environmental features of the estate, such as recycling building waste, would benefit future generations.
