Water Corporation has congratulated the Denmark community on its water saving efforts to date and encouraged residents to participate in the water saving program available.

The Waterwise Towns Program was launched in Denmark in early December after months of below average inflow into local water supply dams. The program forms part of Water Corporation’s work to help reduce Denmark’s water use by 50 million litres by next summer, through one-on-one telephone coaching and free waterwise products and appliances.

Water Corporation Great Southern Regional Manager, Andrew Kneebone, said the Denmark community’s response had been positive and encouraged those who had not yet taken part in water saving programs that it was not too late to get involved.

“To date, 200 households have taken part in the Waterwise Towns Program in Denmark, with 83 customers receiving home visits and eight plumbing services provided to fix leaks,” Mr Kneebone said.  

“More than 100 inefficient showerheads have also been exchanged for waterwise replacements, through the Showerhead Swap Program. To participate in the program, simply take a copy of the flyer distributed in December, or your latest Water Corporation bill, along with up to two of your old inefficient showerheads to the Denmark Co-op Hardware.  

“With the swaps done to date, these showerheads will save up to 700,000 litres of water each year, which is a great start to our water saving efforts.

“I would like to thank everyone who has participated in these programs and helped to save water so far this summer.”
