Water Tanks – Geraldton
Geraldton is on the coast in the Mid West region of Western Australia and is located 424 kilometres north of Perth. At June 2015, Geraldton had an estimated urban population of 39,825. The City of Greater Geraldton, also incorporates the town of Mullewa and large rural areas previously forming the shires of Greenough and Mullewa. The Port of Geraldton is a major west coast seaport and is an important service and logistics centre for regional mining, fishing, wheat, sheep and tourism industries. The major exports from the Geraldton port are iron ore, grain, mineral sands, copper concentrate, zinc concentrate, nickel concentrate and livestock large volumes of petroleum products are imported.
Geraldton has seen high population growth over the past 10 years, which is not surprising considering its enviable outdoors lifestyle, endless beaches and warm climate. The rainfall in Geraldton however, is only 442mm per year and 164 average days of sun, which means that the community needs to be very conscious of their use of water.
The Water Corporation has previously worked with communities in Dongara, Geraldton and Exmouth to change water use behaviours through Waterwise Programs delivered to the community, schools and local government associations. This includes retrofitting inefficient appliances for residential and non-residential customers, and leak repairs.
Water is no longer the freely available commodity that has been in the past, for the local community to ensure ongoing water supply security for residential, rural and commercial needs, it will be increasingly important to invest in water harvesting and storage infrastructure.
