Level Five Water Restrictions - Mungindi

Level Five Water Restrictions - Mungindi

“It is with a heavy heart Council announces Level Five water restrictions for Mungindi; unfortunately, despite the diligence community members of Mungindi have applied while using water, the current level of the Barwon River and forecast conditions have forced Council to increase restrictions to provide the community with access to a safe and reliable water supply,” explained Mr Rodgers.  The Water Supply Schemes Drought Management Plan adopted by Council outlines the process involved when applying water restrictions and the applicable restrictions. For household water users in Mungindi, the following restrictions apply as of Wednesday 8 January 2020: Total ban on hand held hoses; lawns and gardens can only be watered using recycled grey water; Total ban on washing down paved and concrete surfaces; Total ban on filling or topping up swimming pools; Total ban on washing cars; Only water from a bucket can be used while undertaking home extensions or landscaping; Water can only be carted for domestic purposes; Washing of clothes is only permitted with full loads, adhering to the odds and even system; Households with odd street numbers are permitted to use their washing machine on odd dates; Households with even street numbers are permitted to use their washing machine on even dates.
