Level 1 water restrictions St Lawrence

Isaac Regional Council advises St Lawrence residents that Level 1 Water Restrictions came into effect on Monday 20 August 2018. Current storage in the St Lawrence Creek Weir, which supplies the local water treatment plant, has fallen more than 0.5 metres below spillway level, which is the trigger for Level 1 water restrictions.

All other Isaac region communities are encouraged to adhere to water conservation measure.

Water Conservation Measures

Watering days

  • Odd numbered houses water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday
  • Even numbered houses water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
  • Properties without a Council prescribed street number may water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
  • The reason for these watering days is to reduce the cost of infrastructure upgrades and operations, keeping the cost of service low.

These measures are best practice and should be used all year round. They are not enforceable unless under specific water restrictions level 1-4.
