A new initiative to encourage residents to be water conscious, give gardeners new ideas and extend the olive branch to the city's youth to learn about water sustainability, called Let's Thrive will be re-launched.
Cr Phil Betts said it was an excellent concept and showed council initiatives had worked given potable use hadn't risen significantly across the years.
"It's really allowed, and having the community on board, it's really driven that reduction in water usage and I really encourage people to take on these new initiatives," he said.
The initiative includes efforts to encourage the public to take advantage of the water-saving rebate scheme, provides waterwise tips and will develop educational tools for school students about responsible water management.
Council will increase efforts to improve evaporative air conditioning systems, by providing the public with information on how to run them most efficiently during summer.
Cr Russell Webb said it was great to see that all the towns were on permanent water conservation members and he would like to see that continue for the next two years.
"Importantly coming into summer is the evaporative air conditioners, not only do they use a lot of water - about four million litres a day, but if you don't maintain it in good shape it's not going to be as effective as it could be," he said.
"Lets hope people with evaporative air conditioners look at what's happening here - if it is going to be a warm summer we need to have them working as efficiently as we possibly can."
