The Kulin Shire Council exists to sustain, improve and develop the Kulin region through the provision and facilitation of infrastructure, services and opportunities in a manner which will instill community pride while giving a vibrant, socially and economically sustainable environment for businesses and families.
The Shire of Kulin has recieved $314,738.00 of grant funding to assist in drought proofing the Kulin town site.
Not only have the funds been used to reduce the reliance on scheme water for maintaining the town’s ovals, public open space and recreation areas but the project provides an example of how rural towns can successfully harvest surface water to maintain required community facilities.
What has been done
The funding has come from Wheatbelt NRM, through the Department of Agriculture and Food WA and the WA Government’s Royalties for Regions program.
