Water Corporation has joined forces with the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Urban Landcare Group (KBULG) to develop new community projects with a special focus on saving water in the Goldfields region.

 

Water Corporation’s Goldfields and Agricultural Regional Manager Sharon Broad said partnering with one of the first urban landcare groups to be formed in an arid area was a natural step for the Corporation.

 

“We strive to support community projects that focus on the State's growth and vitality, while at the same time increasing awareness of the importance of water sustainability,” Mrs Broad said.

 

“That is why we jumped at the opportunity to partner with the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Urban Landcare Group.”

 

KBULG Chief Executive Officer Kim Eckert was thrilled to learn that their partnership proposal had been accepted.

 

Mrs Eckert said KBULG would now develop projects with Water Corporation to educate the community on how to become waterwise in the home and garden, as well as reaching out to businesses and industry with practical tips to make a positive impact on the environment by saving precious water.

 

“We look forward to working closely with Water Corporation to ensure Kalgoorlie-Boulder continues to thrive in our drying climate. 

 

“I have no doubt this will prove to be a most exciting and rewarding collaboration, and the people of Kalgoorlie-Boulder should watch this space,” said Ms Eckert.
