Level 4 water restrictions will begin next week

Eurobodalla will move to level 4 water restrictions on Tuesday 28 January.

Eurobodalla Council’s director of infrastructure Warren Sharpe said the recent fires had taken a heavy toll on the shire’s water supply at Deep Creek Dam, currently at just over 51 percent capacity.

“That’s our drinking water. The more we can focus on saving water now, the less likely we will need to impose even tougher restrictions in the future,” Mr Sharpe said.

Under level 4 water restrictions all outdoor water use is banned, except:

· Watering gardens with water cans or buckets only, and

· Washing and rinsing private vehicles on grass with buckets only between either 6-8am or 6-8pm.

Variations apply for specific businesses, and emergency services continue to be exempt from all restrictions.
