Waterwise Re-endorsement for Shire of Denmark

Published on Thursday, 31 March 2022 at 11:04:42 AM

The Shire of Denmark has been re-endorsed and recognised as a Waterwise Council for 2022 by Water Corporation.

Denmark has enjoyed Waterwise accreditation since 2017, a recognition of the Shire’s efforts committed to reducing water usage.

The re-endorsement was signed in late March and is aligned with the Shire’s Sustainability Strategy 2021-2031 key pillar of Sustainable Water which aims to manage the threat to the supply and quality of water resources for our community while also seeking to minimise usage.

Water Corporation Manager Water Efficiency Partnerships Nadine Riethmuller wrote to congratulate the Shire on its achievements.

“We would like to congratulate the Shire of Denmark for your achievements in sustainable water management and for demonstrating your commitment to building waterwise communities over the 2020/21 reporting year,” Ms Riethmuller wrote.

The Waterwise program is a partnership between Water Corporation and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation and supports councils to improve their water efficiency and water management to help create a waterwise community.

A Water Management team meets regularly discuss and implement items in the Water Efficiency Action Plan as it applies to the Shire and the community at large and works towards meeting the requirements and goals set for the Shire during the Waterwise Council accreditation process.

Shire of Denmark CEO David Schober said retaining the Waterwise Council endorsement from Water Corporation is in line with community expectations.

“Our community cares very deeply about sustainability and responsible usage of our natural resources,” Mr Schober said.

“We are proud to be one of 64 endorsed Councils across WA which take part in the Waterwise Council Program.”
