The Town has been endorsed as a Waterwise Council since 2020 and has worked hard to meet the Gold standard. The Waterwise Council Program, a joint initiative of the Water Corporation and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, recognises Councils in Western Australia for their leadership in saving water and building waterwise communities.

As a Gold Waterwise Council, we have made significant progress towards achieving best practice water efficiency within our operations and throughout our local community. We are dedicated to continuing our efforts to reduce water consumption and improve efficiency.

To achieve Gold accreditation, endorsed Waterwise Councils must meet several requirements. These include having a Water Corporation approved waterwise verge policy and verge guidelines, having all aquatic centers within their local government area endorsed as Waterwise Aquatic Centers, and having an established Water Management Team within the council.

These requirements are part of the Waterwise Council Program’s commitment to supporting councils in improving water efficiency and adopting waterwise practices in their operations and communities.
