Read Water Minister's statement recognising Waterwise Businesses

Congratulations to Platinum Waterwise Business - Carnamah Recreation Centre and all our Gold Waterwise Businesses! These organisations have implemented a range of water efficiency measures in their operations, to deliver significant savings, we have highlighted their achievements below.

Recognition Criteria

The scheme provides 4 levels of recognition:

Platinum more than 50% improvement in water efficiency
Gold 35% to 50% improvement in water efficiency
Silver 25% to 35% improvement in water efficiency
Bronze 10% to 25% improvement in water efficiency
  • Each year, we calculate the saving in both actual water use and benchmark* as a percentage of your improvement in water efficiency. These figures are used to calculate the savings for the program as a whole.
  • Each reading year savings will be calculated against the year you were identified to join the program.
  • We'll contact you in March/April if you've received an award.

If you feel that your current benchmark indicator does not accurately measure your business activity against site water use or is no longer relevant, you can discuss the possibility of changing the indicator to a more suitable measure with Water Corporation.


You're automatically eligible to receive recognition for the scheme if you've:

  • submitted a WEMP and at least 1 annual report
  • kept all annual reporting requirements up to date
  • demonstrated an improvement in both your relevant benchmark and water use efficiency.

Waterwise Office Program exception

If you operate an office building and belong to the Waterwise Business program, your recognition is through the Waterwise Office Program which represents industry best practice. Therefore, you'll be recognised through this based on an industry standard, rather than individual improvement in water use performance.

Being recognised provides a number of benefits for your business:

  • receive a certificate profiling the category you achieved
  • promotion in publications, social media, forums, our website and other mediums
  • the potential for a case study about your water saving efforts, which will go on our website
  • recognition branding to promote your water saving achievements - these can be used on your website and email signatures
  • opportunity to become recognised as a leader in water efficiency.
