regular features 24 SEPTEMBER 2012 water variability. The stormwater run-off from roofs, roads, paths, parks and other open areas is a valuable alternative supply of water for non- drinking purposes. Our stormwater harvesting initiative at Sydney Park is the kind of program we plan to install in parks and open spaces across Sydney. We will harvest and recycle stormwater, and use the recycled water for irrigating, flushing toilets and high-rise cooling towers." The Decentralised Water Master Plan aims to: • Improve water efficiency in buildings across the City of Sydney to save 10 per cent on the 2006 demand by 2030; • Cut a quarter of water use in city buildings, parks and open spaces by 2030; • Halve the 26 billion litres of stormwater run-off into Sydney Harbour and Botany Bay; • Replace 54 per cent of drinking water used for non-drinking purposes with recycled water; • Water-sensitive urban design, including rain gardens, swales, infiltration trenches within streetscapes and permeable pavers on footpaths to filter or retain stormwater and reduce pollution discharged into waterways; • Diversify water sources to include recycled and treated wastewater, stormwater, groundwater, roof water and seawater to reduce dependence on the drinking water supply. The Decentralised Water Master Plan is part of the City's Green Infrastructure Plan, which is designed to deliver the greenhouse gas reduction and environmental targets in the Sustainable Sydney 2030 program.
