QCOSS Invites you to a presentation by Inga Davis, Program Director of Water Security, Townsville Water and Waste on their innovative WaterSmart Package.
Two years in the planning, this State-funded water conservation program was 86 per cent subscribed within its first two months of operation and has more than 21,450 participating households. WaterSmart Package (WSP) is ambitious in its aim to be inclusive of the whole of community by offering water efficient devices and garden items to renters and concession card holders, as well as home owners and Body Corporates. While WSP encountered internal systemic challenges, cultural resistance and logistical obstacles along the way, it has also resulted in some unexpected bonuses for local businesses by stimulating innovation and cooperative models of local procurement. Inga has generously agreed to give us a presentation on Townsville’s journey to achieving reductions in household water consumption at a critical time in that city’s history.
SEQ Water providers, regional Councils and community representatives are invited to share their experiences of water conservation messaging after the presentation in an open forum.
Join us at QCOSS' office at West End or by Webinar if you are unable to attend in person.
