Schools Water Efficiency Program (SWEP)

Find leaks, save water and promote water education in your school.

SWEP example graphThe Schools Water Efficiency Program (SWEP) is a Victorian Government initiative that enables schools to track their water usage using data logger technology.

SWEP has registered over 1300 schools in Victoria since it started in 2012 - that's more than half of all schools. The program has helped these schools save over 9 billion litres of water, and more than $30.6 million. The savings come from finding and fixing leaks early, and identifying faulty appliances and inefficient practices that schools can change.

Using data loggers (which monitor daily water use in 15 minute intervals) participating schools are better able to understand their water use and identify faults or leaks that may not have been recognised as quickly, or at all. 

SWEP is available to every Victorian school. The program provides access to subsidised data loggers, a dedicated website, specialist advice and curriculum materials for monitoring and managing water consumption and continuing the water efficiency education of Victorian school children.
