Government takes scrooge approach to water tanks

The Federal Government’s decision to scrap rebates for rainwater tanks and greywater systems has highlighted its lack of serious support for environmental initiatives, says the Alternative Technology Association.

Adam Maxey, the ATA’s water policy manager, condemned the withdrawal of subsidies under the National Rainwater and Greywater Initiative.

The rebates were $400 for rainwater tanks between 2000 and 3999 litres and $500 for tanks of more than 4000 litres. The rebate for permanent greywater systems was $500.

“These were miserly rebates to start off with,” Mr Maxey said. “They would barely cover the cost of a pump let alone the rainwater tank, the plumber, the filters and other things. As for commercial greywater treatment systems – they start at about $15,000 so a $500 discount was minimal anyway.”

“The government is taking an extreme scrooge approach to water conservation, which is of national importance.”  Read the rest of the article here on the Alternative Technology Association website.
