National Water Week was introduced in 1993 to create a large scale awareness of the limitations of this precious resource, encouraging everyone to take action, to protect and conserve water while considering our supply options for the future.
Although we still have a long way to go, a change in attitude is evident with water conservation; recycling and reuse becoming conventional within the residential, commercial and industrial markets.
Australia’s leading water industry organisation, the Australian Water Association (AWA) is responsible for the introduction of Water Week and says water recycling is one of the ways of the future.
In the commercial and industrial markets, a Noosaville based business is leading the way. Clearmake is one of the nations waste water treatment, rainwater harvesting and water recycling businesses, expanding operations into Asia with a current project at Hong Kong airport.
The company commenced operations on the Sunshine Coast in 1993 selling oil/water/solids separators. Today they are still selling separators, as well as custom engineered specialty systems operated by numerous blue-chip organisations.
The business has grown rapidly, now employing 17 locals, with contractors and licensed distributors located throughout Australia and New Zealand.
All design and manufacturing is still centralised at the company’s Noosaville facility, so the need to recruit talented new team members will be an ongoing focus for Clearmake.
Clearmake contribute toward water conservation, environmental protection and assist industry to improve operations and inevitably their bottom line.
