Every third week of October, the Australian Water Association organises National Water Week and makes a splash across Australia, inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to build awareness around the value of water.
Access to clean water is hugely important to our daily lives, and it’s down to all of us to protect our water environments and resources, and use water wisely.
As the national coordinator for the week, the Australian Water Association encourages water industry organisations, schools and communities to create and take part in and promote National Water Week events, activities and educational resources.
Logan City Council is reminding residents to consider their water use this National Water Week and to continue good practices in the future.
This year, the Australian Water Association is encouraging everyone to “reimagine our water future” and how our current water practices could impact it.
City of Logan Mayor Darren Power said Council’s water and wastewater infrastructure, as well as its community education programs, were developed with the city’s water future in mind.
“Clean and accessible water is an integral part of the lifestyle we enjoy in the City of Logan,” Cr Power said.
“Our focus on well-planned and efficient water and wastewater networks has allowed us to freeze our component of residents’ water charges for four years in a row.
“We are making good progress towards a sustainable water future, but it is important to remember we all have a part to play.
“As a growing city, we must protect our water resources and use them wisely.”
Water saving strategies and information about Council’s water use program are available on the Logan City Council website.
Every drop counts. The saying is well-worn, and it remains vital to our water future.
