Conserving our valuable resources.

Water. For your future.


Non-Potable Water Action Plan

The City of Kalamunda has released a Draft Non-Potable Water Action Plan to make our parks, reserves and other public spaces ‘greener’. No, we don’t just mean the colour green. The city is also committed to finding environmental solutions that conserve and preserve one of our precious resources – Water!

The City currently operates 40 potable water supplied automatic irrigation systems which use on average 65,000kl per year. Sixty-nine percent (69%) of the water is used to irrigate Sporting Reserves. Unfortunately, as our climate gets hotter and drier the use of drinking water and groundwater is not sustainable for irrigating our fields.

The Plan has been developed in response the following fundamentals issues:

  • Perth’s drying climate.
  • A growing population.
  • Future Public Open Space requirements.
  • The rising cost of using scheme water for irrigation.
  • Current water licencing constraints.

The Non-Potable Water Action Plan provides proactive solutions to address the City’s need to irrigate parks, reserves and other public spaces, in a drying climate, where increased use of drinking water or groundwater is not sustainable - for the benefit of our growing community.

The following key elements are addressed in the Plan:

  • The effect of Perth’s changing climate on current and future water resources.
  • How water licensing works in the City and the current water licensing status.
  • City of Kalamunda’s forecasted population growth.
  • The State Governments forecast for water licencing reform.
  • Future estimated non-potable water supply-demand gap.
  • Potential non-potable water supply solutions.
