Water Restrictions Other

For Extreme Water Restrictions in effect from 14 October 2019

Garden features and temporary childrens pools: top up and filling NOT permitted.

Washing hard surfaces: Washing of outdoor hard surfaces such as driveways and footpaths NOT permitted EXCEPT for health and safety purposes (washing only allowed in immediately affected area and with use of a high pressure/low volume water device).

Indoor activities: 4 minute showers OR 1 bath/person/day (150mm deep) AND WaterWise actions required - ie. only use washing machine and/or dishwasher when full, turn taps off when brushing teeth, check for dripping taps and fix leaks.  Council does not actively enforce indoor water use restrictions, however residents are asked to be conservative with indoor water consumption.

Council reminds customers that maintaining health, safety and hygiene is a priority – conservative water use for these purposes is permitted regardless of water restriction level.

See below a snap shot of restrictions that apply at each water restriction level:
