LEVEL 2 WATER RESTRICTIONS FOR DEEPWATER
Due to ongoing drought conditions, level two (2) water restrictions will commence for Deepwater from Monday, 25 March, 2019. Under level two (2) restrictions residents may use a hand held hose or dripper system only between the hours of 6.00pm and 8.00pm. Further information on levels of water restriction can be found in Council’s Drought Management Plan which can be viewed on Council’s website.
No water restrictions are in place within Glen Innes due to the supply available in the Eerindii Ponds, however residents are advised to minimise water consumption in these dry times to avoid excessive water consumption bills. Residents may be interested to know that if the Eerindii Ponds storage was not in place, level five (5) restrictions would have been implemented at this stage, with the Beardy Weir now 1200mm below top water level.
If you have any questions in relation to water restrictions, please contact Council’s Department of Infrastructure Services on telephone (02) 6730 2371.
