Water for Community

The Water for Community rebate program will assist eligible not-for-profit organisations, including local councils. Facilities including swimming pools, parks, gardens and reserves, sporting and recreation grounds, indoor sporting centres, showgrounds, and public golf courses are likely to be eligible for the subsidy. Cemeteries are also covered.

The Water for Community rebate will be automatically applied to accounts where groups meet the criteria. This is consistent with the Victorian Government’s Water for Victoria water plan, which recognises the importance of the social and economic benefits of providing water for recreational purposes.

Hamilton Golf Course - Water for Community

Wannon Water’s vision is to go beyond water for strong communities. Water for Community ties in well because it recognises the mental, physical and social benefits that recreation and sporting facilities provide for south-west residents. We want to partner in projects that contribute to the themes in our community strategy, covering regional prosperity; education, training and volunteering; health and wellbeing; and the natural environment.
