City West Water
Stormwater Harvesting for a Greener West
Finalist in the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2020 – Government category
City West Water's Stormwater Harvesting program provided increased accessibility to stormwater for public open spaces, greening the urban environment and improving liveability.
The program established guidelines that can also act as a blueprint for infrastructure into the future, to encourage the introduction of new innovative products, including modular storage chambers and compact pumping kiosks.
The program reduced water bills for the customer by $26,000/year, provided alternative water for irrigation, improved waterway health and vegetation, and minimised flooding and erosion impact onsite and downstream.
