About the drought
Since the start of the year, the region has received significantly less rainfall than normal. This is having a big impact on our water supply. On 15th April, the total volume of water stored in our dams dropped below 50 per cent for the first time in more than 25 years. We desperately need to preserve what’s left. Please use water wisely and reduce wastage of this precious resource by:
- Keeping your showers short (four minutes or less)
- Run your washing machine and dishwasher only when they’re full
- Don’t wash your car
- Don’t water blast your house
- Don’t hose your lawn
