Kulin Stormwater Capture and Re-use

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

  • Reconstruct roaded catchments to maximise storm water runoff into town dam.
  • Improve townsite drainage to divert and capture water.
  • Increase water storage capacity of town and oval dams
  • Installation of infrastructure (e.g. tanks, pumps, piping) to ensure effective transfer of water.

Community benefits

  • Reduce the reliance on scheme water for maintaining the town’s ovals, public open space and recreation areas, including the district high school facilities.
  • Reducing reliance on standpipe water for emergency purposes, including water use for stock and fire fighting purposes.
  • Reduce pressure on comprehensive water supply scheme and current infrastructure.
  • Drought proofing of Kulin townsite 
  • Educate the community, both urban and rural, young and old, that water is a precious resource.

The funding has come from Wheatbelt NRM, through the Department of Agriculture and Food WA and the WA Government’s Royalties for Regions program.
