Community water saving programs

We’re working with communities across WA to save water.

Each year, we work closely with households to save water in their homes and gardens. All of our water saving programs includes a series of letters containing personalised water use information to help you understand your water use habits, find new ways to save and even identify leaks. 

To find out what is happening near you, read on below. 

Customers in Dalyellup, Eaton–Australind, Warren–Blackwood and Upper Great Southern please take note:

At present your local shire is partnering with Water Corporation to deliver our Showerhead Swap service to your area, as outlined below.

It has come to our attention that a direct marketing company, who has no connection or business relationship with us, has been contacting households directly by telephone. They are offering a service where someone will come to your home, to install the showerheads for them. 

This offer has nothing to do with Water Corporation and is not being made by us or on our behalf.

This is a campaign on behalf of a solar panel sales and installation business, using a non-existent link to our Showerhead Swap programs in an attempt to generate sales leads for them. Consumer Protection is currently investigating these concerning sales approaches.

If you are contacted in this way, please be cautious. Understand that if you do accept the offer made, you do so at your own risk.

If you wish to participate in the Showerhead Swap, please see the full details of where and how in the separate town pages below.
