Conservation program

Remote towns and communities conservation program

Power and Water is developing a comprehensive resource conservation program to educate residents in remote towns and communities about the use and conservation of water and power.

Remote Operations is also working with selected communities – firstly those with limited water – on Community Water Planning to determine opportunities for water conservation. Remote Operations has developed materials on water conservation and water supplies for use in planning with community council clerks, housing groups, resource centres, traditional owners (men’s and women’s groups), health clinics and schools.

The outcomes of a Community Water Plan will be plans for future water sources, projects that may use or need to conserve water, what water needs the community has and an action plan on how the community and key stakeholders will be involved in water conservation.

For more information, communities can contact Remote Operations on 08 8924 5162.
