With the stringent water restrictions in force, we must all endeavour to do our part to save water.
This life giving resource is precious and valuable, and if your attitude is such that you can water your garden with a hosepipe or sprinkler because no-one can see your back garden then you have missed the point of restrictive watering.
The water restrictions are in place because the water level of our dams are very low. With the tourist season coming up there will be an additional strain on our water resources.
Water is our most valuable resource and we cannot survive without it. As a community we must take this matter seriously and protect our water taking responsibility for the use thereof. The City Council has imposed huge penalties for those who exceed the water limits and also for those who are caught using a hosepipe to water their gardens.
Saving water is in all of our best interest, so please do your part, not only because of the penalties but because it is the right thing to do.
