Waterwise Council Program

We support councils to adopt concepts of water sensitive cities in their operations and the community.

The Waterwise Council Program, established in 2009, is a partnership between Water Corporation and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation.  Over 80% of metropolitan councils are participating in the program, reaching over 1.6 million residents.
