Wa­ter-sav­ing ef­forts re­warded

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park’s Aqual­ife Cen­tre was one of five Perth aquatic cen­tre’s recog­nised by the Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion and the Leisure In­sti­tute of Western Aus­tralia for steps taken to save wa­ter. The coun­cil’s de­ci­sion to in­stall wa­ter-ef­fi­cient show­er­heads with au­to­matic timers to re­duce use was high­lighted at the LIWA State Con­fer­ence on Au­gust 15. Wa­ter Min­is­ter Mia Davies con­grat­u­lated the cen­tres for their wa­ter-sav­ing ef­forts. "All five of the metropoli­tan cen­tres car­ried out ex­ten­sive re­views of how they use wa­ter and de­vel­oped man­age­ment plans to achieve last­ing wa­ter sav­ings,” she said. "They iden­ti­fied many ways to save wa­ter, from retrofitting their in­ter­nal plumb­ing with wa­ter­wise show­er­heads and taps, to car­ry­ing out daily wa­ter-use mon­i­tor­ing and chang­ing the way they main­tain and op­er­ate their fa­cil­i­ties."
