If you need to change your watering days or times, you'll need to make a written application. 

Please use our town’s water carefully, and employ water-saving techniques. Excessive consumption may lead to Level 2 restrictions.

Council staff monitor compliance with the water restrictions.  A first offence will incur a written warning on Level 1 restrictions only.  Subsequent offences will result in an infringement notice and a fine to the individual in breach of the water restriction.  No written warning will be provided for breaches on Level 2, 3 and 4 restrictions and a first offence will result in an infringement notice and fine.
