Water Glenorchy SC14

Glenorchy City Council has been crowned with the Water Conservation award, at the Keep Australia Beautiful, Australian Sustainable Cities Awards 2014. The event was held in the City of Marion this evening.

The Overall Australian Sustainable City for 2014 went to Brisbane City Council, Queensland. The City of Marion earned the right to host the event after taking out the title last year.

The use of both technological engineered solutions such as water treatment plants for some applications and the use of soft engineered landscape solutions for others is a great demonstration of using approaches that are fit for purpose and that are appropriately sensitive to the surrounding area.

Australian Sustainable Cities judge Cameron Little said “what is most impressive about Glenorchy’s approach is that they are not relying on any one technology or source and they have multiple options for redirecting the water. This flexibility gives the entire approach robustness and a diversity that is not often seen outside of major centres.”

Peter McLean, National Executive Officer for Keep Australia Beautiful said, “each finalist has demonstrated significant outcomes in a range of sustainability projects and activities and the National program allows each of them to learn even more from leading projects in other States.”

The Sustainable Cities program allows Australia to show case the best of the best, and provides outstanding examples of how cities around the nation are implementing practical projects that help local communities achieve an efficient and sustainable future.

The Keep Australia Beautiful Australian Sustainable Cities Awards are sponsored by the Australian Packaging Covenant. The principal event sponsor is City of Marion, the 2013 Australian Sustainable Cities Winner. Thank you to our other event sponsors, TAFE South Australia and Solar Bins Australia.
