Shoalhaven Set to Begin Water Restrictions
Shoalhaven residents will be on Level 1 Water Restrictions from 3 September 2018. Level 1 restrictions ban the washing down of hard surfaces such as paths and driveways and allow the use of a hand-held hose at any time for gardening and lawn watering and washing of vehicles and boats.  Sprinklers, drip irrigation and topping up of existing swimming pools can be used, but hoses must be connected to a timer. Handheld watering by a hose is allowed at any time on any day.
If there is no substantial rainfall in the coming months, Level 2 water restrictions would be announced in the future.
Some commercial and community users have standard variations to the restrictions levels and all customers can apply for an approved special variation for their water usage if required for a particular reason. 
For more information on water restrictions, standard variations or to apply for a special variation visit Shoalhaven Water’s website at
www.shoalwater.nsw.gov.au or contact Shoalhaven Water direct on 1300 662 246.
