Kalamunda Flowing - Water Quality… Where the water meets the road

27 August 2021 10:00 AM

Do you wash your car in the driveway? Or fertilise your garden? Does your swimming pool flow over from time to time? Once the rain collects all the soluble and insoluble items in its path (detergents, leaves, litter, weed killer, etc) and carries them to streams, creeks, lakes, and other waterways and wetlands... what happens?

The City is working with Curtin University to develop a storm water strategy to help mitigate the risks of storm water contamination, and we want to know if, and how, the community impacts water contamination. Feedback from the survey will form a risk profile, contributing to the City of Kalamunda’s storm water strategy, and will assist in improving the water quality in the City’s waterways.

The City are seeking feedback in two (2) parts:

  1. Community's feedback on the City's water quality
  2. Focus and understanding on the storm water drainage in the Lower Helena Valley Catchment catchment area.

Storm water is a term used to describe water flowing over the ground surface, in natural streams, creeks and drains as a direct result of rainfall over an area where water is collected by the natural landscape.

Can we do more as a community? Can we do more as a City?

Head on over to our project page to let us know and to find out more about water catchment and drainage, and how our actions might be impacting the quality of our water.

Consultation closes Wednesday 5pm, 22 September 2021.
