Water Conservation Policy

Consultation has concluded

The south-west of Western Australia has experienced a decrease in annual rainfall of 15% since the mid-1970s, which has resulted in a greater reduction in stream flow into dams. Conversely, population has increased rapidly in recent years with higher population growth predicted for the future.

Factors such as decreasing rainfall and water supply, combined with an increasing population and water demand means that efforts to conserve water are needed more now than ever before.

With the present potable water scarcity being experienced in Perth, it is necessary for the Town of Victoria Park and its community to reconsider the ways in which water sources are used and managed.

In response, the Town has developed a Water Conservation Policy and associated Management Practice.

These documents have been considered by the Future Planning Committee and they have requested that they are released to the community. If you have any questions about these documents, please ask a question.
