Stage 3 Water Restrictions

Well it had to happen and a month ago they were predicting stage three water restrictions in January, so I for one am glad that we are moving to stage 3 earlier. If you check out what we are allowed to do with water in the stage 2 restrictions the restrictions are generous, we can water 3 or 4 times a week using hoses and also use sprinkler systems for upto three hours once a week, even numbered houses on Saturdays and odd numbered houses on Sundays. This is pretty generous when compared with watering on the south side of Sydney for instance, they are only allowed to water twice a week.

For the full range of the new restrictions see the link above. I still think this is generous, considering how low the dams are.

It is of course raining in Newcastle tonight.

Your post is not clear -- why exactly are you happy Canberra is moving to Stage 3 water restrictions EARLIER than anticipated?

Dear Anonymous
they were predicting that we would go to stage 3 water restrictions in January, now we are going to stage 3 restrictions on the 16th of december. In my opinion we should have gone straight to stage 3 on the 1st of November.
