Water Restrictions - White Cliffs

LEVEL 1 WATER RESTRICTIONS IN WHITE CLIFFS

Level 1 water restrictions – effective immediately – have been put in place for White Cliffs as we head into the summer months.

The Level 1 restriction has been implemented as a precautionary measure. While dam levels are still at the 6 metre mark, there has been high demand on the system.

Under Central Darling Shire Council policy, White Cliffs households will be able to use sprinklers for two hours a day and filling of pools is prohibited. There is currently no restriction on washing paved areas and roofs.
Businesses will be able to use sprinklers for two hours a day, including public parks and gardens, sports grounds and bowling greens. 

Council asks all residents and visitors to follow the restriction guideline. There are penalties in place for residents, visitors and businesses who ignore the restrictions.

For more information on restrictions, please contact Council’s Administration Office on 8083 8900 or visit Council’s website at www.centraldarling.nsw.gov.au
