Water is a precious resource and the City of Bayswater has been recognised as a Gold Waterwise Council because of our commitment to managing our water resources efficiently and effectively.
The City participates in a range of initiatives aimed at reducing water use at City facilities, including public open spaces.
Our waterwise program is driven by a Water Efficiency Action Plan, which is designed to improve water quality and quantity outcomes. The aim is to become a water sensitive city that is resilient, sustainable, productive and liveable, with a more balanced water cycle.
The City has implemented the N2 strategy, which aims to:
- Reduce our energy and water use
- Lower greenhouse gas emissions
- Empower our community to do the same.
