The City applies industry best practices to maximise our water efficiency by using the latest technology to track, maintain, control and minimise the amount of water used on our sporting fields and parks.
The City is a licensed ground water user and can irrigate between the hours of 6pm to 9am.
All effort is made to irrigate popular used areas during the early hours of the morning; however this is not always possible.
The City appreciates local residents working with us and modifying their route of travel between these hours. Routine maintenance is an integral component in maintaining an efficient irrigation system and for turf maintenance activities. These works need to occur during day time hours; however efforts will be made to minimise disruption to park users.
- The City uses technology connected to a majority of our reserves that allows remote access. Through this we can monitor faults 24/7 and adjust programs daily to suit weather conditions.
- The City utilises flow meters on bores which assist the Water Corporation and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) to monitor water usage.
- The City is trailing the use of injection systems to apply wetting agents through the sprinkler systems, in an effort to maximise water usage.
