• Water Corporation program supports continued water savings in Eaton and Australind

  • Program includes a series of personalised letters, an irrigation reset service and a free showerhead swap program


    Water Corporation South West Regional Manager John Janssen today encouraged households in Eaton and Australind to keep up the good work after making some great water savings since a new program began in October.


    “Eaton and Australind residents have already saved around 70 million litres of water since the Water Corporation program began, which is a great achievement,” Mr Janssen said.


    “The water saving program includes a series of personalised letters, a free irrigation reset service, and in February a free showerhead swap program will also start.”


    “A total of four letters are being sent to around 8,500 Water Corporation customers in Eaton and Australind, containing personalised information about water use and tips to help reduce water use.


    “By receiving updates every two months, households are viewing the results of their water saving efforts – with small changes having a big impact on water use.


    Mr Janssen said residents had found the Water Corporation’s free irrigation reset service particularly helpful, with those taking up the opportunity to use the service saving the most water.


    Water Corporation aims to build on the great savings achieved through the Waterwise Towns Program, which helped save 175 million litres of water over the eight month program.


    “Australind and Eaton residents have shown an impressive long term reduction in water use and this program provides a water use analysis every two months to help households understand the positive impact of their water saving efforts,” Mr Janssen said.


    “I encourage the Australind and Eaton community to keep up their water saving habits in their households, especially during the warmer months when water use peaks, and to take advantage of other initiatives such as the Waterwise Garden Rewards program.”


    Reducing community water use forms part of Water Corporation’s 50-year plan Water Forever: South West to secure the region’s water supplies in the drying climate.
