Water Restrictions Advisory Level 1, Carmila, effective from midnight 11 October 2020

Isaac Regional Council advises Carmila residents that Level 1 water restrictions will come into effect from midnight Sunday, 11 October 2020.

Projections indicate that there will be 100mm or less over V-Notch Weir located 100m upstream of bore locations in Carmila Creek, which supplies the local water treatment plant, on this date. This is the trigger for Level 1 water restrictions.

Residents will be notified through Council’s website and Facebook page to reaffirm these restrictions. We encourage residents to share this important message with their families, friends, workmates and neighbours.
