Water Security Australia

Water is life, and in Katanning WA, the dry—and drying—landscape makes water security even more important. The annual rainfall in Western Australia is decreasing by 3mm on average annually while the months with rainfall over 200 mm has halved. Overall, the temperature has increased by 1°C and this has led to a drier soil and vegetation. This means that more water is lost to evaporation instead of running off to aquifers, lakes, rivers, and dams.

As rainfall and streamflow are predicted to decline further, water security will be a pressing concern for the WA community. Katanning Landcare aims to teach people how to secure, store, protect and manage what water we do have.
