Irrigation of parks and reserves
Irrigation of turf and landscaped areas within the City of Mandurah reserves is maintained regularly. Management includes reviewing and modifying irrigationt to manage water quality and availability within the reserve or locality while maintaining the desired level of amenity of the park for the community.
The water source for the City's reserves is largely groundwater, both superficial and confined, which the City operates under strict licence conditions. These differ greatly to domestic or home bore use.
As part of new developments, the developers are responsible for the maintenance of new parks and reserves newly completed within these areas for a period of three years.
