Denmark and Walpole encouraged to be Waterwise

DENMARK and Walpole residents on scheme water have been invited by the Water Corporation to participate in the 2019-20 Waterwise Towns Program.

This will enable them to access water-saving offers by the corporation.

The offers are suited to local conditions, with Denmark households being offered free showerhead swaps, comparative wateruse letters, an irrigation system check, plumbing retrofits, and rainwater tank rebates.

Walpole households are eligible for the free showerhead swap, irrigation system check and rainwater tank rebates.

Up to two old showerheads will be replaced at no cost with water-efficient units when the old showerheads and a copy of a recent WaterCorp bill are taken to selected locations in each community.

The corporation says that the dramatic impact of climate change in the Great Southern has seen Denmark record three of the driest years on record since 2014, with this year tracking to be another.

The State government has committed up to $32-million to build a pipeline to Denmark from Albany, and up to $7m to cart water this summer to secure the local water supply and the Waterwise Towns initiative.

Waterwise offers are available until May 31, 2020, or until showerhead stocks last and rainwater tank rebates have been expended.

Last year Mount Barker and Albany households participated in the program, helping to save 41 million litres of water – equivalent to more than 18 Olympic swimming pools.
