A program to support and endorse local governments in Western Australia for their leadership in creating water sensitive communities.
The Waterwise Council Program established in 2009 is a partnership between the Water Corporation (WA water utility) and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation. It aims to build a cooperative working relationship with local governments, to improve water use effciency and adopt water sensitive cities concepts in their operations and communities. The program also acknowledges councils that are demonstrating leadership in sustainable water management. It is an opt-in program for councils in Western Australia, providing education, training, materials and funding opportunities, to improve water effciency and build water sensitive communities.
