ADSM Chief Executive Patrick McCart said:

“The savings that the AquaFund scheme delivers, combined with the fact that it doesn’t cost our partners a penny, can sometimes seem too good to be true. I’m delighted that the Water Efficiency Awards have recognised just what we can achieve.”

Buoyed by this success, the Borough is collaborating with ADSM on further initiatives to achieve even greater savings in consumption, cost and environmental impacts.
