LIWA Aquatics wins Water Corporation Award for Water Efficiency Leadership

LIWA Aquatics wins Water Corporation Award for Water Efficiency Leadership
November 16, 2016

Western Australian industry body Leisure Institute of WA Aquatics has been presented with the CEO's Award for Water Efficency at the recent Water Corporation of WA stakeholders event.

The citation for LIWA Aquatics’ award, presented by Water Corporation Chair Eva Skira, read “this is awarded to a Waterwise Partner that has worked collaboratively with the Corporation to deliver outstanding water efficiency outcomes in their industry or business sector.”

Welcoming the Award, LIWA Aquatics Executive Officer Tony Head explained “Water Corporation has partnered with LIWA Aquatics since 2010 (and) together we have collaborated on numerous research projects to identify water use trends in aquatic centres and water efficiency opportunities.

“LIWA Aquatics has been a proactive advocate for water efficiency by inviting the Corporation to speak annually at their State Conference and publish articles in their industry journal.”

In 2012 LIWA Aquatics became the first industry body representing a non-residential segment to be endorsed as a Waterwise Partner.

In 2013, LIWA Aquatics and the Water Corporation combined to launch the Waterwise Aquatic Centre Program with aquatic centres across the state now successfully endorsed as Waterwise.

As a direct result of this partnership the aquatics industry in Western Australia has collectively reduced their water consumption by 13% since 2008 - an estimated 700 billion litres of water, which is a commendable achievement.

Head added “this was a great achivement for LIWA Aquatics and members can be justly proud of as we strive to protect our environment and protect our precious resources.”
