What would a Water Wise Weipa look like? And might your town or city look similar?

This presentation, Transitioning Weipa to a Water Sensitive Town, prepared for Weipa Town Authority, presents ideas for a Water Wise Weipa. The ideas are designed to:

  • support a growing population
  • retain people beyond their working life
  • attract and retain skilled workers and their families
  • address community expectations
  • increase economic opportunities, particularly tourism
  • support Weipa’s transition towards a formal local council
  • help to establish Weipa as the ‘Capital of Cape York’.

The presentation explores context, key challenges and opportunities, Weipa’s transition process, community views, 10 key ideas, and budget estimates for transitioning Weipa to a Water Sensitive Town.
