Open ended unattended hoses must NOT be used at any time.  Householders can water using hand held hoses, watering cans, buckets or water from a rainwater tank at any time.

Council staff monitor compliance with the water restrictions.  A first offence will incur a written warning on Level 2 and Level 1 restrictions only.  Subsequent offences will result in an infringement notice to the individual in breach of the water restriction.  No written warning will be provided for breaches on Level 3 through to Level 6 restrictions and a first offence will result in an infringement notice.

Use of water by fixed systems NOT drawing on the reticulated town water supply such as a property bore should be accompanied by appropriate signage clearly visible from the street adjoining the property being watered.

This Notice of Water Restriction Level 3 (Summer) does not apply to reasonable actions taken to prevent material risks associated with an accident, fire or hazard to health, safety or the environment.
