To meet the long-term water supply, wastewater management and wastewater reuse needs of the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River we are making significant progress in the delivery of a suite of works that cater for projected growth in the region.
The $100 million suite of works involves upgrades to the Margaret River Regional Water Supply Scheme and the Margaret River wastewater management system. Our work will not only deliver climate resilience to all communities serviced by the water supply scheme, namely Margaret River, Cowaramup, Prevelly Beach and Gnarabup, but also ensure sustainable management of wastewater flows.
As the upgrades progress, we will continue to work with Margaret River residents, visitors and businesses to sustain water efficiency gains achieved to date.
Demand management is an increasingly vital aspect of our strategy to deliver climate resilience to water-efficient communities. To support achievement of this objective, water efficiency and other compliance measures will continue to be complemented by educational initiatives and partnerships.
Communities in the Margaret River area are commended for embracing water conservation efforts to date.
