Water restrictions

It is important that we avoid unnecessary water use both indoors and outdoors to conserve this resource. Please be aware of any water restrictions that apply in your area and modify your operations to comply with these restrictions.

About the water restrictions

Water restrictions have now eased in the Sydney/Illawarra but we should follow Water Wise Guidelines and avoid wasting water.

Under the new Water Wise Guidelines, you can use drinking water to:
  • water lawns and gardens before 10 am and after 4 pm
  • water new turf and gardens for up to 28 days
  • top up or fill new pools and spas
  • wash vehicles and clean buildings
  • cool people and animals.
