πŸ’¦βš οΈ Level 1 water restrictions start Friday We are calling on residents to reduce water use, with Level 1 water restrictions in force from Friday (29 November). The result of ongoing dry weather, the mandatory Level 1 restrictions apply to households and businesses for the whole of the Cairns Regional Council area. Level 1 water restrictions were endorsed at today’s Council meeting, with Copperlode Falls Dam expected to drop below the 80 per cent mark – a trigger for Level 1 restrictions. The main consideration of Level 1 restrictions is shorter hours for automated watering, such as sprinklers. Residents will only be able to use automated watering between 6am and 8am, and 6pm and 8pm on the following days: πŸ’§Odd-numbered houses – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday πŸ’§Even-numbered houses – Wednesday, Friday and Sunday πŸ’§No automated watering on Mondays There is also the possibility of moving to Level 2 restrictions early in the new year.
