Level 2 Water Restrictions

Level 2 water restrictions will be implemented across the local government area from 11 November 2019 in a proactive response to the region's drought conditions.

This is a preventative measure to ensure the region has adequate water stocks and to trigger greater awareness among residents about their water consumption.

Summer time refers to Daylight Saving period Eastern Standard time from first Sunday in October (6 October 2019) to first Sunday in April (5 April 2020); Winter time refers to the period outside of Daylight Saving time.
