Halve your water usage to avoid Day Zero

posted in: Water news | 0

Due to our water-saving efforts and declining water use from the agricultural sector, Day Zero has been moved out to 11 May 2018.

However, the only way we can push it out further is if we all keep up the momentum and “live the 50 litre life” and drop commercial water use by 45%, as per level 6b water restrictions.

Level 6b water restrictions came into effect from 1 February, with the following impact:

  • Residents to use 50 litres per day; across home, work, school or elsewhere.
  • Commercial properties need to reduce usage by 45% compared with the corresponding period in 2015 (pre-drought).
  • Agricultural users need to reduce usage by 60% compared with the corresponding period in 2015 (pre-drought).

Full level 6b water restrictions guidelines, including new guidelines for borehole and well-point use.
