(17/3) Popular Denmark community facilities receive a waterwise makeover
Water Corporation’s Waterwise Denmark program has reached the Denmark Recreation Centre and McLean Park Precinct with the facilities receiving a water efficient makeover to help save precious water.
As part of water saving offers available through the program, leaks were fixed, single flush toilets replaced, inefficient showerheads swapped for new efficient ones and many other minor repairs carried out to reduce water use.
Water Corporation Great Southern Regional Manager Adrian Stewart said it was great to see shared facilities, like the Shire-owned Denmark Recreation Centre and McLean Park Precinct amenities, benefit from the program.
“Regular patrons to the popular facilities may notice new push button taps and plenty of helpful reminders around the premises encouraging visitors to report leaks, use the half flush buttons, and shower as long as a four minute song to help save water,” Mr Stewart said.
“Large shared facilities are where some of the biggest water savings can be made so it’s fantastic to see more and more facilities utilise the waterwise program and take positive steps to benefit the whole community.”
Shire of Denmark Technical Officer Ryan Harding said water efficient upgrades recently made at several Shire-owned facilities were seamless causing no disruption to patrons.
“Ensuring shared facilities are as water efficient as possible means the whole community benefits and patrons keeping water use to a minimum will help save even more water,” he said.
Water saving offers available through the program include a free plumbing check, repair and retrofit service as well as a free irrigation system check.
Residents can also swap up to two old inefficient showerheads for new efficient ones helping Denmark households save about 20,000 litres of water a year.
Households and businesses now have until 31 May 2021 to apply for a rainwater reward rebate of up to $1000 for purchasing and plumbing in a rainwater tank to the toilet or laundry.
