At The Gables, all the wastewater we use will be harvested and treated so it can be reused on gardens and for non-drinking purposes such as your washing machine and toilets.
This will help preserve our drinking water supplies so we can all live more sustainably. Box Hill Water will supply The Gables with recycled and wastewater services. Also, you won’t need to install a rainwater tank to meet BASIX water requirements.
But the best news is that thanks to this recycled water supply, homes at The Gables will be up to 70% more water efficient! Box Hill Water’s low impact infrastructure and high environmental performance mean less pollution into our waterways and more sustainability for your home. Access to recycled water also means more secure supplies during times of drought.
You’ll see modern stormwater strategies implemented at The Gables: from our proposed central lake and numerous bio-detention basins to the extensive network of green spaces threading throughout the community. This strategy will help The Gables recreate natural flora and fauna habitats from the local area.
