The Ballajura Aquatic Centre, Swan Park Leisure Centre and the Karratha Leisureplex were all endorsed as Waterwise Aquatic Centres last night at the Leisure Institute of WA Aquatics (LIWA) State Conference.


Water Corporation Customer and Community Acting General Manager David Juers said the Waterwise Aquatic Centre program encouraged aquatic centres around the State to look at ways to conserve water in our drying climate.

“All three aquatic centres have made significant and ongoing commitments to using water wisely in their facilities, such as retrofitting change rooms with water efficient appliances, daily water use monitoring, leak detection programs and using waterwise plants in landscaping,” Mr Juers said.

“Aquatic centres are an important part of our community and the advice and support they receive through this program on their operational water use has helped the industry save 858 million litres since the program began.

“In aquatic centre terms that’s about 381 Olympic sized pools. 

“Everyone in the community has a role to play in saving water, and we now have 31 aquatic centres recognised through this program throughout Western Australia.”

The City of Swan manages the Ballajura Aquatic Centre and the Swan Park Leisure Centre and now have all aquatic centres under its management endorsed as part of the Waterwise Aquatic Centre Program.


The City of Karratha accepted the recognition certificate for the Karratha Leisureplex.


Water Corporation has worked with LIWA to promote and encourage water efficiency in aquatic centres around the State since 2008.
