Water Management

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.

  • Check your reticulation for leaks
  • Fix dripping taps
