Mandurah households invited to save water

AROUND 12,000 Mandurah households will be invited to take part in the Waterwise Towns Mandurah program.

The Program aims to reduce water use by an estimated 135 million litres.

Liberal MLC Nigel Hallett announced the launch of Waterwise Towns Mandurah today (October 21).

The chosen households will receive advice from the Water Corporation to help them identify how they can be more water-wise in and around their homes.

“Residents will receive detailed information on how they typically use water in their homes and gardens, and how they compare with other customers,” Mr Hallett said.

“With this information, they will gain a greater understanding of their water use habits, which will empower them to make effective changes.

“Making small changes can result in big savings and in our drying climate it is important that we work together to reduce water use.”

Mr Hallett said Mandurah residents had recently taken part in a similar Water Corporation trial which had been successful in reducing water use in the area.

“It is fantastic to see a community that is committed to saving water and I encourage everyone who is invited to participate again this time and continue with their good water use habits,” he said.

Based on the results of the previous trial, Water Corporation expects the combined savings will be around 135 million litres, Mr Hallet said.
