The Waterwise Council Program is a partnership between the Water Corporation, Department of Water and Environmental Regulation and local governments aimed at improving water efficiency and management.
The City was first recognised as a Gold Waterwise Council in May 2019 and has continued to be re-endorsed on a yearly basis. To achieve this status, we were required to expand on our existing endorsement by developing new actions aimed at meeting the goals listed in the Water Sensitive Cities Goals Index.
The 2021 Waterwise Council Action Plan (WCAP) guides works undertaken by the City to create a Water Sensitive City. A review of the Action Plan is conducted every five years, with this plan superseding the 2016 Water Efficiency Action Plan (WEAP).
