Apply for a permit to fill a pool
Level 1 water restrictions now apply throughout the Lower Hunter.
During water restrictions, a permit from Hunter Water is required to fill a pool or spa over 10,000 litres capacity and an appropriate pool or spa cover* must be used.
This applies whether the pool is being filled by a pool or spa company, or by the property owner.
