Water Corporation Chair Andrea Sutton, Mandurah Senior Water Resources Officer Dale Robinson, Department of Water and Environmental Regulations Director General Alistair Jones and City of Mandurah CEO Casey Mihovilovich.

The City of Mandurah has been crowned the top waterwise council for a second time.

The City took out the platinum Waterwise Council of the Year at the 2024 Waterwise Recognition Awards after previously taking out the award in 2017.

The award recognised the City's in-depth oversight of its water use, leaks and trends through its in-house centralised digital metering system, informing its operational practices.  

The City of Mandurah has a new 10-year environmental strategy, uses recycled water on its transformed naturescape park, and held workshops to encourage residents to care for the 20 urban lakes within the city.

“The unseasonal warmer and drier weather reminds us it has never been more important for local governments to build climate-resilient and waterwise communities," Water Minister Simone McGurk said.

“Through the Waterwise Council and Aquatic Centre programs, local governments and recreation centres, with support from Water Corporation and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, are saving millions of litres of water a year."
