The Hunter Business Awards have listed the bowling club as a finalist in the Hunter Water Savers category, seeing the club up against heavy hitter Newcastle City Council in the category.

Nelson Bay Bowling Club’s recent renovations have included water harvesting systems which will eventually see all drainage from the roof go into tanks which will power a sprinkler system for the greens.

Alan Barnes, the Club’s Chairman, told News Of The Area “We’ve been working on a strategic plan that is looking at aspects of harvesting as much water as we can which can then be used on the site.”

“If we are successful in winning the award category, the $10,000 will go towards four 20,000 tanks which will allow us to circulate the harvested water without needing to chemically treat it.”

“With the water tanks we should be able to save a considerable amount of water and the second phase of our renovations will see us using grey water for flushing toilets within the clubhouse and servicing the greens into the future,” he said.

The conceptual stage of the renovations at the club have put the building on a footing which will see it be a sustainable development where it comes to water into the future.
