Kayaking at Myponga Reservoir

Our Reservoirs Partnership Program supports grassroots events and projects held at our reservoir reserves and managed by South Australian not-for-profit organisations. They will champion conservation, education or recreation, and help connect communities with our reservoir reserves for their enjoyment and preservation.

The program is already enabling four wonderful grassroots initiatives as part of the inaugural funding round in 2020-21, including:

  • $8,000 in financial support for Outdoor SA to assist in hosting nature-based activities for school-aged, disadvantaged children
  • $8,000 for Paddle SA to enable community groups to undertake kayaking and other paddling activities
  • $6,000 towards facilitating a nature-based, adventure triathlon with the Southern Barossa Alliance
  • $8,000 to create a ‘come and try’ experience for people of all abilities to enjoy the reservoir reserves with Xlent Disability Services.

Reservoirs Partnership Program – 2021 Application

Applications for our 2021-22 program are now open, and we’re looking for organisations, community groups, or local clubs and schools with a fresh initiative that enhances visitor experience and provides everyone with a chance to enjoy our beautiful reservoir reserves – and there’s up to $10,000 in funding available to help get it off the ground.

South Australia’s reservoir reserves are special places of natural beauty combining adventure and fun, and we want to partner with you to create even more ways to connect communities with nature and recreation.

Before applying, please read the program’s criteria and familiarise yourself with the important conditions of access at our reservoir reserves, which will help guide your application.

If you have any questions about the program or your application, please contact us at reservoirs@sawater.com.au.

Applications for this round are now open – apply online now.

Applications close midnight Tuesday 28 September 2021.
