Waterwise towns programs

We’re working with communities across WA to save water.

Each year we work closely with households to help them save water in their homes and gardens. Included in our water saving programs is a series of letters containing personalised water use information. They are created to help you understand your water use habits, find new ways to save water and even identify leaks.

Activities are winding up for the 2018-19 programs in the towns listed below, but a new suite of prgrams will soon be announced.

Free irrigation system check, controller setup and minor leak repairs

We tend to 'set and forget' our irrigation controllers but how do we know they are still watering efficiently? An irrigation specialist can help. They'll check that your run times are suitable for the types of sprinklers and the area you live in and help you set your controller. They will also offer practical advice and will even repair minor leaks.

To apply for the program contact please email waterwise.towns@watercorporation.com.au or call the Waterwise Towns team on (08) 9423 7117.

Applications must be received by 1 May 2019. Offer available for a limited time or until the budget is expended.

What did the programs achieve in 2017-18?

Our water saving programs in the Mid-West Region, South West Region and North West Region included the towns of: Gascoyne Junction, Yalgoo, Denham, Exmouth, Moora, Coomberdale, New Norcia, Bindoon, Chittering, Capel, Onslow, Fitzroy Crossing and Halls Creek. Together these towns saved in excess of 75ML, what a fantastic effort!

We'd like to thank all of the households and businesses that participated. By making small changes to the way we use water inside and outside, we've made a big difference.
