State Government Funding and Sustainable Water Management Making a Shire-Wide Splash

Published on Tuesday, 4 April 2023 at 3:00:00 PM

The Shire of Toodyay has received a $73,897 grant from the WA Government’s Community Water Supplies Partnership Program. This program is jointly funded by the State Government and the Commonwealth Government’s National Water Grid Connections Funding Program, and we plan to put our portion to good use: utilising the Toodyay Recreation Centre precinct roof and basketball courts to maximise stormwater harvest for irrigation and firefighting.

We have also been re-endorsed and recognised as a Waterwise Council for 2023 by the Water Corporation. This comes as part of the Waterwise Council Program, which supports councils in improving water efficiency and adopting waterwise practices in their operations and communities. Thank you to everyone who has helped us achieve and maintain sustainable water management in the Shire.

Finally, a new water tank has been installed by volunteers at Morangup Community Hall, having been fully grant-funded to the value of $15,000. The 27-kilolitre tank (pictured below) was supplied by Hills Concrete Pty Ltd, Northam.
