23/09/2019 - Level 3 Water Restrictions Continue in South Burnett

With drought conditions continuing throughout the South Burnett area, Council is monitoring water restriction levels. All towns in the South Burnett are currently on Level 3 water restrictions, which is one (1) level stricter than the minimum recommended level.

Sunwater’s announced allocation is currently 100% of Council’s high priority water, which is expected to be cut if summer rain does not eventuate with substantial dam storage increases.

Sunwater will continue to assess water storage in the region and will advise Council should allocations change resulting in amendments to current water restrictions.

Under Level 3 restrictions, the following conditions apply:

  • No Watering on Mondays unless specifically stated (as per restriction guidelines) / Odd Numbers – Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday / Even Numbers – Wednesday, Friday, Sunday

  • Residential watering hours – 7am to 8am and 5pm to 6pm

  • Hosing or washing of concrete paved areas is banned

  • No filling of swimming pools or spas – topping up allowed

For further information regarding Level 3 water restrictions and permitted water use, please   refer to the ‘Water Restrictions’ page, contact Council’s Water & Wastewater team on 4189 9100 or email info@southburnett.qld.gov.au.
