Swap showerheads for free in Geraldton and Jurien Bay

Midwest Times

People in Geraldton and Jurien Bay can swap their showerheads for a new waterwise unit free of charge.

The showerhead swap is part of a State campaign to reduce residential water use.

The Waterwise Towns program ran last financial year and saved roughly 75 million litres of water.

WA Water Minister Dave Kelly said the program had delivered some excellent results recently, including saving enough water to fill more than 33 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

“Given around 22 per cent of all household water use is in the shower, swapping your old showerhead for a water-efficient one at no cost is one of the simplest ways to save water in your home,” he said.
