World Water Day

On the 11 of April, Council hosted a bus tour to celebrate World Water Day. The theme this year was around water and sustainable development. There were three key discussion points:

  • how West Torrens has grown with and alongside the River Torrens 
  • how Council is using best water management practices for future developments
  • what can be done at home to reduce water demand and pollutants leaving your property.

Future water management at West Torrens

Over the last decade or so, Council has been investing in a new way of managing water called water sensitive urban design or WSUD for short to transition Council to a water sensitive city.
