Regional water saving programs

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

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

Free irrigation system check and controller setup

We tend to ‘set and forget’ our irrigation controllers but how do we know they are still watering efficiently? An irrigation specialist can help. They’ll check that your run times are suitable for the types of sprinklers and the area you live in and help you set you controller. To apply for the program contact waterwise.towns@watercorporation.com.au. Applications must be received by 1 May 2019. Offer available for a limited time or until the budget is expended.

What did the programs achieve last year?

Our water saving programs in the Mid-West Region, South West Region and North West Region included the towns of: Gascoyne Junction, Yalgoo, Denham, Exmouth, Moora, Coomberdale, New Norcia, Bindoon, Chittering, Capel, Onslow, Fitzroy Crossing and Halls Creek. Together these towns saved in excess of 75ML, what a fantastic effort!

We'd like to thank all of the households and businesses that participated. By making small changes to the way we use water inside and outside, we've made a big difference.
