West Sussex smiling about AquaFund
The Cabinet Member for Finance at West Sussex County Council says he’s “smiling ear to ear” about being part of AquaFund®.
Michael Brown says he’s delighted with the scheme which he describes as a “win win situation” for the Council, AquaFund® and the charity WaterAid.
“We estimate that the County Council can save 20 percent of its current water consumption by signing up to the scheme. Over the five-year contract period, this equates to £160,000.
“This scheme is so attractive as AquaFund donates one percent of all its revenue directly to the charity Water Aid, which improves access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities, meaning that we are helping charity while also saving water.
“It’s a win-win situation, not only is the County Council reducing its carbon footprint and water consumption, but in turn it is saving money off its utility bills, and supporting Water Aid and the vital work they do.”
West Sussex is one of the areas officially in a state of drought, so the water saving work being carried out by ADSM will make a vital contribution to cutting the county’s consumption.
