Drainage for Liveability
Drainage for Liveability is about finding ways to work collaboratively and make better use of the green spaces around drains and drainage infrastructure.
About the program
Drainage for Liveability has been designed to enhance the value to the community of stormwater drains and basins across WA. It is a collaboration between Water Corporation and Department of Water.
Drainage infrastructure serves a functional purpose, but it also has the potential to contribute to the liveability of our local communities.
Working with interested community groups, local authorities and the development industry, we are aiming to improve drainage and water management, and increase the value of these open spaces in our urban environment.
Water Sensitive Cities
Water Sensitive Cities look to integrate water systems planning with land use planning. The aim is to show how water can make our communities more sustainable, productive, resilient and liveable.
Drainage for Liveability is part of our support for the transition of Perth and regional centres across WA towards the vision for the Water Sensitive City.
