Water Restrictions Advisory - St Lawrence, Level 3

Isaac Regional Council advises St Lawrence residents that Level 3 water restrictions will come into effect from 4pm on Friday, 24 January 2020.

Isaac Regional Council advises St Lawrence residents that Level 3 water restrictions will come into effect from 4pm on Friday, 24 January 2020.

Level 3 water restrictions are triggered when the water level is 1.5 metres below the St Lawrence Weir overflow, which supplies the local water treatment plant.

Residents will be notified through Council’s website, Facebook page, next edition of the Broadsound Bulletin 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.
