Alice asked to adopt 'community water rules'

 

 

"Community water rules" – does that sound like you're going to be told you can only water the garden twice a week or only use a bucket to wash your car? Not in Alice, not yet anyway. Alice Water Smart, a $15m project funded by the Australian Government, wants the town to formulate its own rules for using water more efficiently. But this won't force you to change your lifestyle and the rules will be voluntary, more a guide to maintain "what you've got" or get you "what you want to have", says project officer Liz Locksley. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
