National Water Week

Busselton has some of the most beautiful waterways in Australia and we never miss the opportunity to celebrate our precious resources and ask everyone to get involved.

That’s why we plan a special event to mark national water week in October each year.

National Water Week is an opportunity for the whole of Australia to come together to take action to protect our vital water sources and to celebrate the innovation and achievements in water that underpin our nation’s sustainability and economic prosperity.

National Water Week 2018: Water for All

National Water Week runs from 21-27 October 2018 and to celebrate Busselton Water is running the Water for All art competition.

The national theme for this year is ‘Water for me, Water for all’ to encourage young people and the wider community to think about how we use water and how we can protect it so there is enough for the future. It also promotes the opportunity to start conversations and encourage people to learn more about the value of water.

To celebrate Busselton Water called for the community to submit an art piece which expressed why they value water. As a permanent reminder of why the Busselton community values water, a new car in the fleet was adorned with the 260 entries received from community members aged seven to 72.

“We’d like to thank everyone who contributed to this project – including Busselton Toyota for its generous support, as well as all of our budding local artists and writers!” said Busselton Water CEO Chris Elliott.

Keep an eye out around town for this special car and see if you can spot your artwork!

A huge congratulations to Karena Michie, Caleb Boekelman, Millie Jasper and Sabella Banks who each took home a $100 voucher for their efforts in showing us why they value water!
