BAYSWATER council staff have taken out two state awards for water conservation.

The Australian Water Association’s WA Water Awards recognise “innovation and excellence in delivery of water projects”. 

Bayswater’s sustainability and environment manager Jeremy Maher won the senior award for WA and was acknowledged for his work protecting wetlands, advocating sustainable urban design, and mentoring young water professionals. 

• Bayswater’s catchment manager officer Rebecca Ferguson, CEO Andrew Brien, and sustainability and environment manager Jeremy Maher.

The Young Water Professional award went to catchment management officer Rebecca Ferguson, who was noted for working on the remediation plan of Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary and transforming old drains into “living stream” wetlands in Morley.

“I am incredibly humbled by this award,” Mr Maher said.

“The work my team and I undertake directly improves the water systems within the city and the liveability of the area for our community.”

The pair are up for the national awards at Adelaide’s “Ozwater” 2020.
