Water Restrictions Advisory - Clermont, Level 2

Isaac Regional Council advises Clermont residents that Level 2 water restrictions will come into effect from 4pm on Friday, 17 January 2020.

Isaac Regional Council advises Clermont residents that Level 2 water restrictions will come into effect from 4pm on Friday, 17 January 2020. Current storage in Theresa Creek Dam, which supplies the local water treatment plant, is presently more than 1.25 metres below spillway level, which is the trigger for Level 2 water restrictions.

Residents will be notified through Council’s website, Facebook page, next edition of the Clermont Rag and a letterbox drop to reconfirm the restrictions. We encourage residents to share this important message with their families, friends, workmates and neighbours given the drought conditions the Isaac region is facing.
