Back to Level 1 water restrictions on Fraser Coast
WATER restrictions will revert back to Level 1 from Monday onwards.
The restrictions will be loosened after the region experienced heavy rainfall from ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie in recent weeks.
Water storages at Teddington Weir and Lenthalls Dam are now at full capacity.
"Over the past week, rainfall totals recorded at Teddington Weir and Lenthalls Dam reached 136mm and 140mm respectively," Councillor Anne Maddern said.
Level 1 restrictions allow:
- All sprinklers, irrigation systems and soakers hoses between the hours of 4pm and 9am daily, but must be fitted with a manual or automatic timer;
- Hand-held hoses at any time, but must be fitted with a working, water efficient trigger nozzle;
- Hosing of driveways and paved areas when a water efficient high-pressure cleaner (e.g. gerni) is used;
- Flushing of boat motors by hose at any time
