Aqua Metro Services and Melbourne Water took home the state and national Australian Water Association Organisational Excellence Award early this year for the Wara Paring Indigenous Civil Construction Project.

The Organisational Award recognises innovative initiatives within the water industry that drive prosperity and sustainability. The award encompasses a need for change within the industry and places high value on initiatives that ‘reimagine our future’.

Wara Paring is a first of its kind, 100% Indigenous owned business, with a vision to ignite hope, establish respect and deliver sustainable outcomes across our waterways and connected lands. Wara Paring translates to “come walk the path together”, inspiring industry change and encouraging total reconciliation for a better future.

We are thrilled and honoured to have received this award on a state and national level, and thank everyone involved for their dedication to this initiative. We thank Melbourne Water for their sponsorship and Wara Paring Civil for their trust and hard work.
