Water Recycling

Melbourne is really on the ball when it comes to recycling water and saving on bottled water. I was sitting in Bourke Street and somebody came up to this and they filled their water bottle. I realised then it was a filtered water dispenser.Took up no room, was cleverly disguised and was a service Melbourne was offering to tourists and residents so they had access to filtered water. Meant the rubbish from bottles was being cut down too. Federation Square is  plumbed using recycled water and so it is very clear when you visit that Melbourne has a commitment to water...quality water and the supply of drinking water. Their sustainability  policies and practices and their commitment to the environment and our water situation was very evident in good practice.
