We introduce water restrictions when the levels in our supply rivers become too low to pump and we can no longer keep our storage dams full.
Sometimes we have different towns on different levels of water restrictions, depending on the situation at each of our supply rivers.
Our water restrictions system is guided by our Drought Contingency and Emergency Response Plan(PDF, 2MB) .
To find out more about our water restrictions system, see our FAQs.
Refer to the following tabs to find out what you can and can't do at home during each level of water restrictions.
