Information for homes
Take a quick look at Level 1
Level 1 water restrictions apply to everyone in the Lower Hunter and reducing our water consumption now will help us save water for our future supply. Changing a little can save a lot!
What's allowed under Level 1 Water Restrictions?
What's excluded from water restrictions?
There are basic exclusions from restrictions activity:
- Recycled Water
- Greywater (water from sinks, showers, washing machines etc.)
- Rainwater (provided the tank/dam is not topped from or switched to, the drinking water supply)
- Bore water
- Water used for firefighting, testing and related activities.
The next water restriction levels
Level 1 water restrictions will remain in place until storage levels have fully recovered, but remember, just because it's raining around you, doesn't mean it's raining in our catchment areas. If drought conditions continue, we could move through water restrictions levels 2 and 3.
Information for businesses
Under Level 1 water restrictions, the restrictions for businesses are the same as those that apply to homes, however, for our business customers, there are additional expectations. Find out more here.
