During the spring and summer, practical watering restrictions help us manage our water supply over the dry season. Not all water providers will initiate watering restrictions, but if they do, each 'Stage' has a consistent definition across the region as part of a new standardized framework to improve clarity.
Watering restriction times are set in an attempt to balance the needs of the several major water suppliers in the region, some large systems on surface water sources, other smaller systems on groundwater sources.
Funds are exhausted for 2018 - but start planning ahead for 2019! Pre-approval applications will be accepted starting in January. Please [ Click Here ] for all the program details and application forms.
