The Shire of Harvey receives recognition as WA's newest waterwise council through the Waterwise Council Program.

The Shire of Harvey is one of 48 councils State-wide now endorsed through the Waterwise Council Program - an initiative of Water Corporation and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation to help local governments adopt more water-efficient practices.

Shire of Harvey President Paul Gillett said the Shire was pleased to be acknowledged for the water-saving efforts made by the Shire.

“Being waterwise is a shared responsibility across the community,” Cr Gillett said.

“Climate change and the growing population have impacted our water resources dramatically across the state and in our Shire.

“By adopting more water-efficient practices across the Shire operations, we can do our part to reduce demand on our water sources.”

The Waterwise Council Program was introduced by Water Corporation and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation more than 13 years ago. It is one of several targeted programs that promote efficiency among high water users and ensure all segments of the community are doing their bit to conserve precious water supplies.
