Water Restrictions

There are no current water restrictions in our service area.

Stage 2 water restrictions were lifted in Briagolong township from Tuesday 25 February, 2020.

What is the impact of water restrictions?

A summary of water restrictions appears below. Details of water restrictions and exemptions can be found in the Water Restriction By-law (see document link below).

Water restrictions have an immediate benefit in helping to preserve a town’s water supplies. They constrain how our customers can use water and generally only apply to outdoor water use.

During restrictions, water can be used at any time for human health requirements, stock and animal health requirements, fire fighting, and the safety (not cleaning) of vehicles and equipment.

Summary of Water Restrictions


Note: 'Alternate day' means in the case of a property with an odd number street number, each odd number day of the month. In the case of a property with an even street number, or a property with no street number, each even number day of the month. The 31st of each month and 29th of February are considered 'alternate days' for all properties.
