Works of art proposed for water towers
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.
