Water Restrictions Water Restrictions

Level 2 water conservation measures are now in place across the region.

Cassowary Coast Regional Council has eased current restrictions now to Level 2 water restrictions from 11/12/2018 as a result of good rain falls over the past week.

Level 2 water conservation measures are:

 

  • Watering by manual or automated sprinklers, microspray or drip watering systems and hand held hoses are prohibited on Mondays.
  • Odd numbered houses, sprinklers allowed on Tuesdays, and Saturdays, between the hours of 6am and 7am and 6pm and 7pm only.
  • Even numbered houses, sprinklers allowed Wednesdays, and Sundays, between the hours of 6am and 7am and 6pm and 7pm only.
  • Hand held hoses, fitted with a trigger nozzle can be used on any day except Mondays. Watering cans or buckets can be used at any time.

Water restrictions do not apply to consumers who are using a bore or rainwater tank for outdoor uses.

It is recommended, residents who have a bore or rainwater tank make application with Council to have the bore or tank registered with Council.  Council will inspect the bore/tank and provide a sign (that can be erected on the fence), all at no cost to the applicant.  The application form is below.
