Severe water restrictions in force
Severe (Level 4) water restrictions are now in place for most of the MidCoast Council region from Monday 25 Nov 2019, banning all outdoor water use and restricting business water use.
All our region's water supplies are at Level 4 restrictions except for the Hawks Nest/Tea Gardens area, which remains at Level 3 (Very High) restrictions (due to the aquifer used for their supply).
Accommodation providers are requested to share details of the water restrictions with their guests.
- Download the Level 4 info guide here and Level 4 poster here.
- For Hawks Nest/Tea Gardens areas download the Level 3 info guide here and Level 3 poster here.
