With a climate as hot as Bunbury's the community will benefit from innovative and supportable management of water resources.
Those living in Bunbury rentals and residential property will be pleased that the Western Australian government has made moves to developing a sustainable and inexpensive way of desalinating water to assist with the rising water challenges both locally and globally.
The University of Western Australia, supported by the local government, has developed a working example of a water desalinating plant that can be powered by geothermal heat.
"This technology has the potential to service industry, tourist precincts, small towns, remote Aboriginal communities and large residential and commercial operations such as mine sites or agriculture. It continues a tradition of West Australians adapting to their environment to produce innovative water solutions and meet their water needs," said Water Minister Mia Davies in a March 22 statement.
As Bunbury continues to grow and the population increases, the city aims to work with the community and local government to improve the way natural resources are used and managed in the region.
Innovative programs such as these will help to create a sustainable Western Australia for those living in real estate in Bunbury well into the future.
