February 2017


A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Yippee we’re back on deck in the Year 2017 and what a rippa it is going to be too.

Hope you all had wonderful Christmas holidays resting, rejuvenating and having a heap of fun with friends and family. I stayed home living on the land taking it easy with kids and friends and the never ending odd job you get living on 3 acres.

Australia Day has been and gone already too and how very sad it was with the deaths of the couple in the plane crash. I spent the day down at Busselton staying at Mums. Went to the beautiful foreshore for the Australia Day Rotary Club big breakfast that was so well organised with teamwork like clockwork. Walked the jetty, swam and had a fab time.

Wow have you noticed the mornings are starting to get a bit darker again? Weather, what strange weather we’re having. Stinking hot one day and then rain and storms the next with temperature drops to match. I do love the cooler weather and hope we don’t get any rotten heat waves.

Well I better let you all get onto reading the rest of this Newsletter now but drink up and keep hydrated.

See you all next time and remember, If You’re Not Using A Water Filter, Your Body Is One!!!

Law and Water

New water resources management legislation

In February 2015, the State Government approved drafting of the Water Resources Management Bill. The drafting of the Bill has commenced with significant progress expected by mid to late 2017. The government remains committed to consulting on the Bill development and will discuss progress as well as refining drafting approaches with stakeholders as and when they become available.

The approval to draft the Water Resources Management Bill followed the release of Securing Western Australia's water future – a position paper and a subsequent three-month public consultation period, which included metropolitan and regional workshops with water licensees and interested stakeholders throughout the state.

In Western Australia, all natural water resources are vested in the Crown. So the Western Australian Government is responsible for:

-Enabling the productive use of water

-Protecting water resources and their environments

-Ensuring water resources are shared, used and managed well

Water resources are currently managed under six different Acts. These Acts regulate the take and use of water, protect waterways, manage drainage and protect public drinking water sources and supply. We are proposing to consolidate the six existing Acts into one modernised Water Resources Management Act.

Water facts


There are 166 estuaries in Western Australia as established through the National Land and Water Resources Audit (NLWRA) 2000, where an estuary is defined as a semi-enclosed body of water where fresh water and sea water mix.

Estuaries could also be considered as the mixing zone where rivers meet the sea - it is important to note that this mixing zone could extend many kilometres inland from the coast.

Health Tip

Drinking Water Helps Maintain the Balance of Body Fluids.

Your body is composed of about 60% water (estimates vary depending upon age, health and enviroment). The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature.

When you're low on fluids, the brain triggers the body's thirst mechanism. Unless you are taking medications that make you thirsty, you should listen to those cues and get yourself a drink of clean crisp filtered water, juice, milk, anything but alcohol and keep the sugar content down, if it's used at all.

Customer testimonial


This morning I was finally jacked off refilling water jug filters and rang WCWFM and Richard turned up within a couple of hours and installed a system for us.

Professional and cheerful (nice change from the previous call we'd just made) from the get-go and to the moment he left. Can't wait to brag and promote to friends or strangers (and that's not my usual style).

Richard, you're a superstar - thanks a bunch. Another Happy Customer

Thanks again, Lisa.

A closing thought


“When wrathful words arise, a closed mouth is soothing”

Angry words are spoken and often angry words and rebutted. A better option is to say nothing. Silence is key in many situations. By keeping a closed mouth and biting your tongue, your are able to let the other person vent and you are not responsible for anything anyone else says, only your own words. Better to remain silent than to apologize for letting your anger get the best of you.
