Northam and Wundowie pools dive into water saving program
Northam Olympic Pool and Wundowie Swimming Pool have been recognised as Waterwise Aquatic Centres by the Water Corporation and the Leisure Institute of WA Aquatics (LIWA).
Western Australian Water Minister Mia Davies congratulated the centres and the Shire of Northam for their water saving efforts at a LIWA conference on Monday 10th August where she presented nine aquatic centres with certificates recognising their new Waterwise status.
Minister Davies stated "these centres all carried out extensive reviews of how they use water and developed management plans to achieve ongoing water savings.
"They identified many ways to save water, from retrofitting their internal plumbing with waterwise showerheads and taps, to carrying out daily water use monitoring, to changing the way they maintain and operate their facilities.
"Northam Olympic Pool and Wundowie Swimming Pool have both changed their cleaning practices and optimised the operation of their pools to reduce water use. Northam also installed pool covers to minimise evaporation, and Wundowie reviewed its irrigation system to cut back sprinkler use.
"I encourage aquatic centres across Western Australia to get involved in the free Waterwise Aquatic Centre Program to demonstrate to patrons their commitment to saving water."
The Koorda Swimming Pool and Mukinbudin Pioneer Memorial Aquatic Centre were also recognised as Waterwise facilities.
The Water Corporation has worked with LIWA to promote water efficiency in aquatic centres, which has helped the industry save 489 million litres since 2008 - which, in aquatic centre terms, is more than 195 Olympic-sized pools.
The Waterwise Aquatic Centre Program is open to all aquatic and leisure centres in Western Australia with 17 centres recognised since the program was launched in August 2013.
