Lower Goldfields water use helps ease State water crisis
Mandurah were facing reduced pressure on water resources after a trial of the program, the Water Corp said the move was not being considered as an option for the Goldfields.
Goldfields and Agricultural region manager Sharon Broad implored locals to continue their efforts to help the State bring down consumption levels.
“We’re asking and businesses to households help save water by reducing their sprinkler run times by two minutes per station … a household can save around 480 litres of precious water each week,” she said.
“Our customers in KalgoorlieBoulder have smart water meters installed at their homes and by signing up to My Water, they can track their water use daily, if they wish.”
In 2014-15, residents connected to the Goldfields and Agricultural Water Supply Scheme used nearly 25 billion litres of water.
