Extreme (Level 4-5) water restrictions came into effect on Monday 14 October 2019.
From Monday, 24 February 2020, residents will no longer be permitted to use a hose, microspray system or other water efficient irrigation systems. Instead, gardens can only be watered using buckets or watering cans. Water times will also be simplified, with watering allowed before 10am or after 4pm, on Wednesdays and Sundays only for 30 minutes of filling time. The 30 minutes will apply for the time it takes to fill buckets and watering cans.
A BRC Squiz Sesion was conducted in September to discuss the impact of water restrictions on local businesses. To access the presentation click here: Extreme_Water_Restrictions and Your Business Presentation
