Waterwise community resources

Local governments

In most communities, the council is the local water service provider. Because of this, local government has an important role to play in raising community awareness about the need to use water wisely.

Local governments can contribute to educational activities about water-related topics. Many local governments operate tours of their water and wastewater treatment plants.
