Actew is calling for your input in a consultation on water restrictions running to 10 June 2011.
“To undertake the review we have developed concept water restrictions and water conservation measures schemes. These are based on not only our experiences in managing water restrictions, but also the many comments, ideas and suggestions that have been provided to us by the community in the past several years.”
The ACT currently has a scheme of Water Restrictions from Stage 1-4 which are in place when water supplies are scarce and reductions in the amount of water our city uses are required. When water supply is not scarce and water restrictions are not required then Permanent Water Conservation Measures apply.
Mr Sullivan said “We are currently reviewing not only the water restrictions stages but also the permanent measures to make sure they best suit the lifestyles and needs of Canberrans while ensuring we make water savings when needed.
