Following more dry days and higher than average water usage, Stanhope is encouraging Canberrans to think before watering and according to the ABC, ACTEW are making subtle hints about stage 4 restrictions.
Although it has been dry (as per usual), according to ACTEW’s website dams levels don’t appear to be plummeting. There is a small downwards trend for Cotter and Bendora, but is this just the ACT Govt & ACTEW trying to give us a scare to reduce water consumption? Meanwhile everyone seems to have forgotten about water strategies. I guess if we can all live indefinitely under level 3 restrictions, who needs a water strategy?
