Changes to Georgetown Water Restrictions

The level of water in Well 1 in the Etheridge River has fallen to more than 1m below full.  Under Etheridge Shire Council's current Drought Management Plan this level is a trigger point for a reduction in restriction of water usage.

Level 1 restrictions will now apply to all water connections within the GEORGETOWN WATER SUPPLY SCHEME. Notice is hereby given of water restrictions in accordance with the Local Government Act and the Water Act 2002 Section 388(1) Restricting water supply.  Level 1 Water Restrictions are effective from midnight on Sunday 19th of May 2019.
