Local artists have brightened three electrical cabinets and a wastewater pump station in Yanchep and Mandurah with their work as part of the Water Corporation’s Splash of Colour Program.

Minister for Water, Dave Kelly said Mandurah artist, Elli Moody and Mullaloo artist, Peter Ryan were enlisted to transform the infrastructure with colourful artwork which reflected the importance of water to local communities and ecosystems.

“The four unique and eye-catching designs were created with help from students at Mandurah’s Dudley Park Primary School and Yanchep Beach Primary School,” Mr Kelly said.

“The students participated in workshops to inspire the final designs and learnt how important it was to look after the environment and save water.”

The Minister said each mural reflected life in the beachside suburbs, with the Mandurah artwork showcasing canals and beach shacks, while the Yanchep design featured illustrations of animals found at a nearby golf course.

“The Mandurah electrical cabinets are within Rotary Park and along the canal at Darwin Terrace,” he said.

“The Yanchep locations include an electrical cabinet on Foreshore Vista and a large wastewater pump station on St Andrews Drive.

“The Water Corporation has supported the Splash of Colour Program since 2017 and 55 assets across Western Australia have been painted as part of it,” Mr Kelly said.
