Localised rainfall was recorded at South Gippsland Water’s storages from the 3rd of January to 10th January 2014 with 12mm at Ruby Creek and 9.5mm at Battery Creek.
Philippe du Plessis, Managing Director of South Gippsland Water said today, “Little rain fell last week with dry, hot conditions forecast over the coming days, the Corporation expects all storages to dip in response. The Corporation reminds all customers 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 used at any time.
