TasWater have advised Council that they have introduced Stage 1 water restrictions in Bridport from TODAY, Friday 20 December 2019 through to Monday 10 February 2020.
Stage 1 restrictions aim to reduce non-essential outdoor water usage by 20%.
The declaration of a water restriction has been made in this instance due to exceptionally dry conditions during winter and autumn 2019, and further forecasts of warm weather (and increased water demand) predicted for the months ahead. The Bridport community will be advised of the restriction through a public notice in the Examiner on 20 December 2019.
Further information about the guidelines for water use during Stage 1 restrictions can be found on the TasWater website here.
