GWIG – Greywater & Wastewater Industry Group
GWIG is a non-profit organisation which was formed in late 2010 in order to provide a united voice for a WA industry that is largely unsupported and under-acknowledged for the important work that it does.
We have developed a number of aims to enhance community awareness and increase the uptake of wastewater re-use in all its forms.
GWIG is working towards a responsible, sustainable use of water in Western Australia and promoting the re-use of wastewater through education, public promotions and professional development, for residential, large-scale industrial and commercial premises.

Perth faces a drought of action over water use - article by Stewart Dallas
Perth’s water managers have declared that the city will be a leading “waterwise” city by 2030 but there is a lot of work to do to reach that goal, given that Perth has the second-highest per capita water consumption of any Australian capital city.

GREYWATER AND WASTEWATER INDUSTRY GROUP
I have been lucky enough to have had a greywater system in our Hami Hill Sustainable Home since 2011. As a family of five we have worked the system pretty hard and I have been amazed at the reliability and efficiency of the system as well as just how readily my landscape has adapted and even thrived through the use of greywater. Plants that I had originally thought might struggle with greywater – Grevilleas, citrus, fruit trees and Hakeas – have all responded really well and our soil continues to build and improve under this greywater regime.
When I think that this system has saved me hundreds of thousands of litres of scheme water, not too mention fertiliser and that is essentially a hassle free system, I couldn’t imagine a scenario where greywater was not front and centre in my water efficiency regime.
