A DUN­CRAIG wa­ter ex­pert’s decades-long con­tri­bu­tion to the Depart­ment of Wa­ter earned him an Aus­tralia Day Achieve­ment Medal­lion.

Roy Stone (above) was ac­knowl­edged for what Depart­ment Direc­tor Gen­eral Mike Rowe de­scribed as an “ex­tra­or­di­nary num­ber of firsts”, in­clud­ing the first spec­i­fi­ca­tion to con­tract a pri­vate com­pany to lay a pub­lic wa­ter sup­ply line. He also pro­moted bet­ter re­la­tions with in­dige­nous com­mu­ni­ties.

“Roy led de­vel­op­ment of WA’s first wa­ter al­lo­ca­tion plan to com­pre­hen­sively con­sider Abo­rig­i­nal cul­tural val­ues,” Mr Rowe said.
