Although there are currently no formal water restrictions in the Overstrand, the Municipality has a permanent provision that prohibits residents from irrigating gardens between 09:00 - 17:00 in order to prevent unnecessary loss of water through evaporation as per the water services by-law no. 46.(1).
Residents are once again reminded that water is a scarce resource and must be used sparingly.
