Water restrictions in Whitsundays

LEVEL 2 water restrictions in the southern end of the Whitsundays were implemented yesterday.

Whitsunday Regional Council has advised residents in Proserpine, Airlie Beach, Cannonvale, Jubilee Pocket, Shute Harbour and surrounds will be affected.

Accordign to Council, this was due to the need for the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) to carry out remedial works on their infrastructure within the bed of the Proserpine River, specifically the Hinschen Weir site.

This meant Sunwater was required to restrict the release of water from the Peter Faust Dam for a period of one week.

Under Level 2, water users in the Proserpine, Airlie Beach, Cannonvale, Jubilee Pocket and Shute Harbour regions will be restricted to watering their gardens with sprinklers on alternate days (odd days of the month for odd numbered houses, even days of the month for even numbered houses) between 6-8am and 6-8pm only.

Micro-spray or drip systems are allowed to operate between 6pm-8am only and handheld trigger hoses only between 5-9am and 5-9pm.

The need for water restrictions will be assessed again next month.
