Having a water bore drilled on your land can have many benefits, including giving you a ready supply of water that can be drawn upon even if your main water supply cuts out. However, water bores cannot simply be dug anywhere—besides the fact that a lot of land does not have suitable aquifers for boring, many other water boring operations are cut short by unsuitable topography, difficult soil types and other problems.
- Every single household will generate wastewater. However, since this wastewater can be a health hazard if not treated and disposed of in an efficient manner, you will find that this responsibility is tasked to your local council. Nevertheless, this does not mean that you cannot engage in your own domestic wastewater treatment. If done appropriately, your domestic wastewater treatment efforts can results in increased efficiency in your household's resources, as the wastewater can be recycled in various applications and used once again.
- Voluntary programmes take many forms in Australia and they can be anything from one-off projects to long-term commitments. Each state has a variety of programmes that you might consider taking part in and there are some federal and international ones, too. Many Australians volunteer in an organised programme. In fact, well over a third of the adult population take part in some form of voluntary project which is the equivalent of more than six million citizens.
- Summer is an enjoyable season mainly because you get to bask in the sun while relaxing on a sand beach. However, it is not all that fun when you think of energy costs; this is also the season when people spend a lot of money on cooling appliances such as air conditioners. These appliances consume a lot of electrical energy, which means that you have to spend more than usual to keep your home cool.
