Uniform water restrictions apply to the Fraser Coast.
Residents and businesses in Hervey Bay, Maryborough, Tiaro and surrounding areas using potable water supplied by Wide Bay Water should be aware that Level 1 restrictions currently apply and this means that:
- All sprinklers, irrigation systems and soaker hoses are banned between 9am and 4pm.
- Hosing of driveways and paved areas is banned at all times except when a water-efficient high-pressure cleaner (ie. gerni) is used.
- All hand-held hoses in use must be fitted with a working trigger nozzle.
- Flushing of boat motors by hose is allowed at any time.
