Gympie Regional Council would like to advise of changes to water restrictions in the areas of Kandanga, Amamoor, Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay and Cooloola Cove.
In the Kandanga and Amamoor regions, water restrictions have been reduced from Level 4 to permanent Level 3 status due to recent rainfall.
This means residents may now water gardens with hand-held hoses and buckets during scheduled days and times, as well as top up pools and wash vehicles. However, lawn watering and filling of pools remain banned activities in this region.
In the Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay and Cooloola Cove regions, water restrictions will be increased from December 1, 2017 – January 31, 2018 to Level 2 status.
The increase aims to cater for the significant growth in population due to tourism in the holiday period.
Permitted activities include filling pools (after obtaining appropriate Council approvals), hand-watering lawns and gardens with hoses and buckets at scheduled times, and cleaning of paving and driveways using pressure cleaners.
Water restrictions remain the same in all other areas of the Gympie region.
