Warmer Weather Sees Storages Start to Dip

Monday, November 17, 2014

 No rainfall was recorded at South Gippsland Water’s storages from the 8th November 2014 to 14th November 2014.

The warm weather conditions experienced over the last week have started to impact storages. All customers are reminded to be water conscious and follow the Permanent Water Saving Rules in place across all water supply systems.

The Permanent Water Saving Rules include;

  • All hand held garden hoses to be leak free and fitted with trigger nozzles.
  • Only clean paved areas with water if it is required and there is a health or safety hazard, or if staining has occurred and then only once a year.
  • Fountains and water features can be used only if they recirculate water.
  • Water gardens and lawns with sprinkler systems between 6pm and 10am (during the cool). Hand held hoses and buckets can be used at any time.
