Water restrictions

Water restrictions are in place of necessity as a temporary measure to discourage excessive water use, and to preserve the water levels of dams. This leads to lower consumption, and the accompanying water restriction tariffs do not, therefore, generate additional income for the Municipality.

The Municipality has a permanent provision that prohibits residents from irrigating gardens between 09:00 and 17:00 in order to prevent unnecessary loss of water through evaporation as per the water services by-law clause 42(1)(f).

Residents are once again reminded that water is a scarce source and must be used sparingly.

Mon – Fri: 07:45 – 13:00 & 13:45 – 16:30
