Waterwise Development Program

In partnership with the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) WA Division, we're proud to host the Waterwise Development Program which is unique to WA. This program provides a platform to recognise and celebrate exceptional water efficiency outcomes in all new water sensitive developments.

Waterwise recognition of a development allows us to showcase the fundamental role that the development sector has in ensuring we build water efficient communities while sustaining our unique lifestyle here in WA. Supporting developers to implement water efficiency principals in their estates helps us work towards our long term plan to provide a sustainable water future for generations to come.

To be recognised as a Waterwise Development, the following criteria must be met;

  1. Your development must be registered with the EnviroDevelopment Program - compliance with annual re-certification is required.
  2. Your development must have met the requirements to achieve certification of the Water Element in the EnviroDevelopment Program.
  3. Following your registration with and certification of the water element by EnviroDevelopment, EnviroDevelopment will provide Water Corporation with your contact details to discuss endorsing you as a Waterwise Development.
  • Recognition by Water Corporation and EnviroDevelopment of your Waterwise Development endorsement.
  • Exclusive access to utilise the waterwise logo to promote your project as a Waterwise Development including access to promotional materials, such as flags or signage, for use in entry statements and display villages or alike.
  • The opportunity to lead and promote water efficiency within your community by using our waterwise educational resources.
  • Invitation to workshops, networking and industry events.
  • A platform to showcase your sustainable water management initiatives on our website through case studies.

To help embed waterwise behaviours into your evolving community we have a range of free educational resources available to you and your residents.
