Level 1 water restrictions Middlemount

Isaac Regional Council in conjunction with Anglo American advises Middlemount residents that Level 1 water restrictions will come into effect on Monday, December 3, 2018. Due to the current decline rate of Bundoora Dam and Anglo American’s requirements to maintain the continuity of raw water supply to its operations, Council has been requested to reduce the town water supply allocation to Middlemount to 90 per cent.

Level 2 water restrictions St Lawrence

Isaac Regional Council advises St Lawrence residents that Level 2 water restrictions will come into effect on Thursday, November 1, 2018. Current storage in the St Lawrence Creek Weir, which supplies the local water treatment plant, has fallen more than 1.25 metres below spillway level, which is the trigger for Level 2 water restrictions.

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.
