East Fremantle Leads the Way Towards a WaterWise Future

Published: Thursday, 2 July 2020 at 10:02:37 AM

WA Water Minister Dave Kelly has commended local governments for their commitment to developing sustainable, liveable communities and leading the way towards a Waterwise WA.

The Western Australian Government's Waterwise Perth Action Plan sets the direction for transitioning Perth to a leading waterwise city by 2030.

Today marks a milestone towards achieving the plan's targets, with all metropolitan local governments now participating in the Waterwise Council Program.

The program encourages councils to adopt waterwise principles with free education resources, data loggers to assist with leak detection and access to greening scheme funding up to $10,000.

The Minister extended his congratulations to the Town of East Fremantle, Shire of Peppermint Grove and City of Wanneroo for being officially endorsed as Waterwise Councils for the first time in 2020.

The Waterwise Council Program is a partnership between Water Corporation and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation. For more information, visit http://www.watercorporation.com.au
