Gold status for Shire of Mundaring

Published on Friday, 17 March 2023 at 9:19:00 AM

Shire of Mundaring has again been re-endorsed as a Gold Waterwise Council by Water Corporation.

This is the sixth time that the Shire has received this important recognition. 

Shire President James Martin said he was proud of the Shire’s consistent waterwise achievements. 

“The Gold Waterwise endorsement recognises the Shire’s work to promote efficient and sustainable water management, which is a priority in the Shire’s Strategic Community Plan,” he said.

“In 2021, Council adopted a Waterwise Council Action Plan. 

“The Action Plan requires that water efficiency be a key consideration in designing and maintaining Shire facilities and landscaping.

“The Shire also encourages residents to adopt waterwise, and firewise garden principles around their homes.”  

To be re-endorsed each year, the Shire has to demonstrate ongoing progress in line with its Waterwise Council Action Plan. 

In addition, the Shire’s Bilgoman Aquatic Centre is also endorsed in Water Corporation’s Waterwise Aquatic Centre’s Program. 

Key steps to maintain waterwise endorsement at the pool includes recording the water readings daily, push button controlled showers and sink taps, using rainwater in winter for backwashing the pool area, and monitoring behavior that could result in excessive water loss from the pool.
