Due to the continuing dry conditions and resultant low flows in the Richmond River and Peacock Creek, residents are advised that Level 1 water restrictions for Casino, Kyogle and Bonalbo are to come into force on Midnight, Wednesday 22 October 2014 as follows :-
Sprinklers and fixed hoses (including soaker hoses) shall NOT be used between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm.
Hand held hoses may be used at any time, but to conserve water it is recommended that watering is only done during the cooler periods of early morning or evening. Exceptions are allowed for essential businesses where business hours dictate water use. Applications should be made in writing to the respective Council.
No restrictions apply for industrial or stock watering purposes.
