The Schools Water Efficiency Program (SWEP) is a Victorian Government initiative funded by the Department of Sustainability and Environment and Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.
The first stage of SWEP ran from 2006 to 2011 and assisted more than 1,700 schools across Victoria to save water by implementing low cost water efficient plumbing solutions in schools.
The next stage of SWEP is voluntary and will provide data loggers for schools to help continue the education and demonstration of water efficiency in practice.
For more information on the program and registration, please visit the SWEP website.
