BAYSWATER Waves has been named a waterwise aquatic centre for the second year in a row.

The City of Bayswater centre was awarded at the 50th Annual Conference of the Leisure Institute of WA  Aquatics (LIWA) this month.

The City is undertaking a 10-year upgrade and maintenance plan of the 21-year-old centre, worth $10 million.

It is one of eight centres recognised for using water as efficiently as possible.

Mayor Dan Bull said the recognition demonstrated the City’s commitment to saving water.

“Some of the practical ways we are using water wisely at Bayswater Waves are the installation of automated taps and toilets, and low flow showerheads,” he said.

“We have also pressure tested pool circulation systems to identify and fix leaks, and audited and investigated usage throughout the facility.

“The strong working relationship the City has with the Water Corp has not only ensured it has incorporated waterwise principles into its operations but is fast becoming a leader in sustainable water management across the City.”

Water Minister Dave Kelly said the Water Corporation and LIWA provided centre managers with advice and information to review operational water use as part of the waterwise pools program.
