Water­wise nod

Guardian Express - - SPORT -

BAYSWATER Waves has achieved Water­wise Aquatic Cen­tre sta­tus, af­ter un­der­go­ing ma­jor re­fur­bish­ment works last Jan­uary.

The 20-year-old cen­tre has a re­fur­bished out­door pool and grand­stand, new pool boiler and wa­ter­slide, earth­ing in the in­door pool and a new chem­i­cal stor­age shed, as part of a 10-year up­grade and main­te­nance plan.

Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion and the Leisure In­sti­tute of WA Aquat­ics recog­nised the cen­tre as part of the Water­wise Aquatic Cen­tre Pro­gram, which in­cluded 39 cen­tres across WA.

The cen­tre, run by the City of Bayswater, in­stalled sub-me­ters and is mon­i­tor­ing its wa­ter use to proac­tively iden­tify leaks.

Its chang­e­rooms will be re­fur­bished, with wa­ter-ef­fi­cient show­er­heads and push-but­ton taps be­ing in­stalled.

Bayswater Mayor Dan Bull said the City was proud to see the re­fur­bish­ment works be recog­nised as part of the pro­gram.

“Cre­at­ing a more en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able fu­ture for ev­ery­one in our com­mu­nity is in­cred­i­bly im­por­tant to the City of Bayswater, that’s why we’ve been work­ing to en­sure all of our fa­cil­i­ties adopt en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly prac­tices in any way that they can,” he said.

Wa­ter Min­is­ter Dave Kelly con­grat­u­lated the City for its ef­forts.

“Through the pro­gram, the Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion and Leisure In­sti­tute of WA Aquat­ics pro­vide aquatic cen­tre man­agers with ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion to re­view op­er­a­tional wa­ter use and sup­port to pro­mote water­wise prac­tices in their cen­tres,” he said.
