ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Pimpana Coomera water plan of the city council in Gold Coast, Queensland has won the 2006 World Water Congress' Global Grand Prize in Beijing, China. The project focuses on the conversion of water coming from the rain and from the storm for household uses including bathrooms, laundry and hot water services with the principles adapted from Water Sensitive Urban Design. Gold Coast City Council Water Sustainability Committee Chair Daphne McDonald claims that Australian water consumers will now only use 16 percent of water for drinking from their total consumption with the implementation of this project.
