Halton Borough Council has made significant savings on water usage in the last two years, reducing consumption by more than 50%.

In October 2008 Halton entered into a three year contract called AquaFund from a company called ADSM which specialises in water management.

ADSM installed water-saving technologies at numerous corporate sites at their expense, then on an ongoing basis they provided a water usage monitoring service.

This means any leaks in the system are detected early which enables engineers to carry out speedy repairs to further cut wastage.

A proportion of the income they generate then goes to WaterAid, a charity that helps developing countries with projects for clean water and sanitation. Halton Borough Council has made a huge contribution towards WaterAid's work and this is shown in their Sustainability Update - http://www.adsm.com/sustainability-update/Halton-Borough-Council.pdf

Halton Borough Council's executive board member for Resource, Cllr Mike Wharton, said: "We have seen dramatic effects at certain sites. We have reduced consumption at The Stobart Stadium, Halton, by 50% - obviously our water bills have reduced accordingly.

"With our continued drive for better efficiency and looking after our resources for the sake of the environment, this is a very good deal for the people of Halton."

At the end of the three-year period when the contract ends all the equipment becomes the property of the council, the reduced consumption continues and Halton retains 100% of the savings.
