Water-waste reduction shower roses

(Question No 1260)

Mr Cornwell

asked the Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, upon notice:

In relation to A.C.T. public housing properties and water saving measures:

(1) Have bathrooms in all A.C.T. Government housing properties been fitted with water saving shower roses to assist with water waste reduction;

(2) If not, why not.

Mr Wood

: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) No.

(2) It is standard Housing ACT policy to fit AAA water saving shower heads to existing properties undergoing major upgrade, for new properties being designed and constructed, and when replacing faulty shower heads in other properties. Other water saving features such as dual flush toilets are also installed on the same basis. Due to the nature of this programmed approach to installation, not all properties have water saving shower heads as yet. All properties will progressively receive water efficient shower heads as new ones become necessary and this will enable Housing ACT to take advantage of improvements in the technology as they become available.
