Target your water use

With hot weather forecast, Gippsland Water would like to remind customers to target their water use.

Gippsland Water General Manager Customer and Community Paul Clark said that although there are no water restrictions in place for Gippsland Water customers, permanent water saving rules apply.

“Permanent water saving rules are simple things we can all do at home to make sure we’re not wasting water,” he said.

The rules include only using hoses with a trigger nozzle, only using watering systems between 6pm and 10am daily and not hosing paved areas.

“The rules go hand-in-hand with the Victorian government’s voluntary water efficiency program, Target Your Water Use, which also encourages customers to use their water wisely.

“While our water storages are in good shape we shouldn’t be complacent. The heat serves as a timely reminder for us all to be water wise,” Mr Clark concluded.
