Waterwise Council

The Shire of Capel continues to take action to reduce water use and has retained its status as a Waterwise Council.

Over the past 10 years the Shire has implemented a range of water saving projects including installing rain water tanks, installing water efficient taps, toilets and other fixtures, regularly checking for and fixing leaks and adjusting irrigation levels for parks and ovals depending on weather conditions.

The Shire has also encouraged the local community to save water through initiatives such as the Waterwise Display Village in Dalyellup, Waterwise Garden competitions and Reset your Retic programs.
