Council takes an educational approach to the enforcement of water restrictions. When Council is made aware of any breaches to the restrictions, the owner/occupant of the house or premises will be contacted by a Council Officer to discuss the reported breach.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding the reported breach and the outcome of the discussion, the owner/occupant will be provided with information on the water restrictions and water conservation practices. If the breach is confirmed, the occupant will also be given a warning, which will be confirmed in writing.
Any repeated breaches may result in further action from Council, which can include, but is not limited to, restricting the supply of water to their property and/or installing a water meter.
