Stage 3 Water restrictions.
Depressing – I know… Not enough rain has led to stage 3 water restrictions. It’s sad, now when it rains everyone gets so excited like it’s a miracle or something… because it kinda is these days…
Stage 3 will be brought in on the 1st of January, after stage 2 was brought in on the 1st of November.
This is what Stage 3 entails –
No sprinklers allowed.
Automated dripper systems 12-4a, 2 days a week – Odd no. houses – Sunday/Wednesday. Even No. houses Sat/Tuesday.
Pools/spas must be topped with a bucket only with a permit, and new pools/spas must have a permit to be filled.
Only a quarter of all sporting venues will be watered.
This is a scary figure – Victoria only recieved 2.8mm this month, when the average rain fall is usually 46.8mm for December.
