September 21 2017: Consumption of water in the greater Mission Beach region is currently critical

Consumption of water in the greater Mission Beach region is currently quite high and as a consequence the reservoir storage capacity is CRITICAL.

 

Could Mission Beach residents reduce their water consumption as a priority and abide by the Level 2 water restrictions.  Unless consumption moderates, it may be necessary to extend the boil water alert to the South Mission Beach, Wongaling and Merryburn areas. 

 

Under Level 2 restrictions, no watering of gardens is permitted on Mondays whether by manual or automated sprinklers, micro spray or drip water systems or hand-held hoses.

 

Odd numbered houses may use sprinklers on Tuesday and Saturdays between 6am and 7am and 6pm and 7pm only.  Even numbered houses may use sprinklers on Wednesdays and Sundays between 6am and 7am and 6pm and 7pm only.

 

Hand held hoses, fitted with a trigger nozzle, may be used on any day except Mondays.  Watering cans or buckets can be used at any time.
