South Gippsland Water is preparing for a dry summer ahead and is encouraging customers to be aware of and follow Permanent Water Saving Rules; they apply throughout the year to all Victorians and are in place to promote water efficient behaviour.
Three easy steps to remember are:
- Water during the cool – between the hours of 6pm and 10am.
- Install trigger nozzles – on all outdoor garden hoses.
- Sweep, don’t hose – don’t waste precious drinking water on cleaning footpaths and patios, use a broom instead.
- Any customers who have questions or concerns regarding their water supply can contact South Gippsland Water’s friendly Customer Service Team on 1300 851 636.
