Works of art pro­posed for water tow­ers

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

MAN­DURAH’S water tow­ers could soon be glow­ing with colour and en­vi­ron­men­tal art­works if Peel-Har­vey Catch­ment Coun­cil has its way.

The coun­cil wants the tow­ers to be part of a com­mu­nity art project in which they would be painted to cel­e­brate the Ram­sar (pro­tected) sta­tus of lo­cal wa­ter­ways.

PHCC sought $100,000 on the draft Bud­get from the City of Man­durah and fund­ing from other or­gan­i­sa­tions to­wards the $300,000 project.

It is seen as a pub­lic ini­tia­tive that would high­light the pro­tected wet­lands that are in­ter­na­tion­ally sig­nif­i­cant for the broad range of plants, marine life, and mi­gra­tory bird species they sup­port.

Five tow­ers have been iden­ti­fied as po­ten­tial sites: the Wine Glass and the Mush­room at Halls Head and those at Dower Street, Cad­dadup and south of the Mand­joo­go­or­dap Drive round­about.
