Why we acted

Amidst a state-wide water shortage and continually drying climate, the City of Melville recognises its responsibility to manage and reduce its water use, and understands it is ideally positioned to act as a community leader.

The Tompkins Park change room showers are frequently used by the community, which means the potential for water savings are high.

How we did it

The project was funded internally by the City of Melville as part of its Local Action Plan, developed in 2006 for the ICLEI Water Campaign. 

The City has since reached Milestone 5 of the Water Campaign and the City’s Local Action Plan is now due to be updated. 

Its ongoing water efficiency actions are captured in the Environmental Improvement Plan 2012–2014. This plan which also validates the City’s endorsement as a Waterwise Council.
