Schools Water Efficiency Program logo

The Schools Water Efficiency Program (SWEP) allows Victorian schools to access their own water usage information through a fun educational online platform. Data loggers are placed on school water meters to record usage data for the school to then monitor and track.

SWEP is currently being used by over 1140 schools in Victoria and since it started in 2012 the program has helped these schools save over six billion litres of water which would have cost them more than $18.3 million in water and wastewater charges.
