Sydney Water restrictions

The continuing drought is having an affect on all Australians.
The dry conditions have added bushfires to that list, and the forecast is for a hot summer.
Here in greater Sydney we sometimes forget about our country cousins, the farmers that produce most of our food supplies and how the lack of rainfall is affecting them.
But that is about to change.
Sydney dam levels have dropped below 46% capacity, and with our growing population, we’ve got to slow down on our water usage.
Thankfully we have a desalination plant to help out.
It may add a nominal charge to our water bills, but I believe that’s a small price to pay.
Sydney Water has announced that from Tuesday, December 10th 2019 greater Sydney will move to Level 2 water restrictions.
For householders, it means there will be a few more rules about how and when we can water our gardens, wash our cars and generally use water around our homes.
We can all save water!
Our business has to apply for a water use exemption.
The exemption doesn’t mean we can waste water.
It means being more thoughtful about how to use it.
