A major water-wise overhaul of the Synod Centre in Auchenflower, Brisbane, together with Raymont Residential College and associated buildings will net a saving of around 1,000,000 litres of water each year said Mission Support Enterprises Business Manager Eddie Carleton.
The Synod installed 32 dual flush toilet cisterns, 41 restricted shower roses, 59 inline flow restrictors and 48 spring-loaded taps, and an anti-evaporation blanket was fitted to the Raymont Residential College pool.
Mr Carleton said the $30,000 water-wise makeover was part of the Synod’s commitment to being more environmentally responsible.
“We recognised the severe water situation Brisbane currently faces and wanted to ensure that the synod was doing its bit to reduce water consumption across the entire Auchenflower property,” Mr Carleton said.
Justice and International Mis-sion Advocate Andrew Johnson said he hoped congregations across the state might take similar action as part of their stewardship of water resources.
