How to become endorsed

To become endorsed as Waterwise, your council needs to address the following criteria.

Step 1 – Council commitment

Step 2 – Create an action plan

  • Create an action plan to identify water efficiency goals and opportunities for your council facilities and within your community.

Step 3 – Complete free waterwise training

  • Encourage your team members to complete our free waterwise training modules today, which includes helpful topics such as landscaping and irrigation, water auditing and cooling towers. 

Step 4 – Be a waterwise leader

  • Our water is precious, so make sure your council leads by example by sticking to your watering days, and following water restrictions such as the winter sprinkler ban.
  • The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation and Water Corporation will verify each council has received no license or usage breaches as part of the ongoing endorsement assessment process.

Step 5 - Apply for recognition award (optional)

  • The recognition scheme celebrates councils who have done valuable work in crating waterwise communities.
