TRC Chair of Water and Waste, Cr Nancy Sommerfield said that from today, Council has changed the hours of water use for residential users on medium restrictions from ‘4.00pm to 4.30pm’ to now being between ‘5.30pm and 6.30pm’.
“Medium level water restrictions have been in force since September for Hodgson Vale, Vale View, Cambooya, Clifton, Greenmount, Pittsworth (including Brookstead and Southbrook), Cecil Plains and Yarraman.
“The drought conditions are causing significant stress on water supplies and Council bores are under pressure in a number of regional communities.
“We still need the community’s help to reduce water consumption as the drought conditions continue to impact us all.
“As a region, our aim is to limit our water consumption to 200 litres/person/day. The more water we can save the better.
