Purpose of the program

Water Corporation recognises that we have a responsibility to improve the liveability and aesthetics of our highly visible assets for residents and the local community.

The aim of the Splash of Colour program is to enhance the amenity of these assets by working with the community and local artists to transform everyday water and wastewater infrastructure into public art pieces.

Program Objectives
