What you can do

Report water wastage

If you notice any water leaks please call x 54000. Please note that periodically sprinklers will be turned on during the middle of the day for testing and routine maintenance.

Dispose of harmful liquids and materials responsibly

Never dispose of fat, oil, paint, chemicals or any other potentially harmful substances down stormwater drains or in the landscape. Anything put down the stormwater drain will end up in Sullivans Creek, contaminating the water and posing a danger to wildlife.

Bin your rubbish

Litter in the landscape can injure or poison wildlife. Toxins from plastics can leach into waterways and soils and food scraps can encourage greater numbers of pests such as feral cats or foxes.

Avoid walking and driving on planted areas

Please don't take that shortcut! Walking and driving over the landscape compacts the soil and damages the vegetation, especially under wet conditions. Impacted soil structure and vegetation can take a long time to recover.

Leave wildlife alone

Do not bother or feed native animals, particularly birds. Animals that are fed can become dependent on your food source.

Get involved with monitoring and voluteering

There are lots of opportunities to get involved with monitoring and volunteering programs including bird and frog monitoring and rehabilitating and endangered woodland.
