Water Restrictions Advisory - St Lawrence, Level 2

Isaac Regional Council would like to advise St Lawrence residents that Level 2 water restrictions will come into effect from Monday, 14 December 2020.

Predictions indicate the water level will be 1.0 metre below the overflow level of the spillway of St Lawrence Creek Weir on this date, which supplies the local water treatment plant.  This is the trigger for Level 2 water restrictions. Residents will be notified through Council’s website, Facebook page and a letterbox drop to reaffirm these restrictions. We encourage residents to share this important message with their families, friends, workmates and neighbours.

Mobile water tankers, other than tankers directly used for firefighting purposes, must not be filled with water from the water supply system except by way of exemption from Isaac Regional Council.

Filling must occur via a metered standpipe only used on designated watering days in the specific time period as per residential use. Applications for an exemption must describe use and volumes required. Exemption approval will be based on social, health, environmental or economic considerations. Standpipes will not be accessible without an exemption from Monday, 14 December 2020.
