Community reference groups

We have a community reference group at the Woodman Point wastewater treatment plant to enhance communications between Water Corporation, the Aroona Alliance and the nearby community.

The community reference group (CRG) meets regularly and serves as a forum for community concerns to be discussed and for solutions to be considered. Local community members are encouraged to speak to their community and stakeholder representatives on the CRG, who can bring their concerns to the meeting for discussion.

The Beenyup community reference group was closed in 2019. We thank the former CRG members for giving up their time to represent the community.
