Hey Sydney You’re Copping Water Restrictions From Saturday

Sydney Will Be Placed Under Water Restrictions From Saturday

Water restrictions will be enforced in Sydney this Saturday for the first time in a decade.

The New South Wales government said the water level in the Sydney area's reservoirs has been continuously declining since the 1940s and restrictions will be imposed from next week.

As water storage levels continue to plumment amid NSW's ongoing drought, the Berejiklian government has made a decision to bring in level one water restrictions ahead of schedule.

"Why is the NSW Government dragging its heels on reducing water usage in Sydney when Melbourne residents use 30% less water per person". Water restrictions are an important drought response because they target the outdoor water use of all households.

Dam levels in the state down from 96 percent in April 2017, Ms Pavey added.

Sydney's desalination plant at Kurnell was switched on January, when dam levels dropped below 60%.

"Regional NSW has been experiencing a record drought". As 75% of their output goes to residential addresses, Sydney Water has announced that the (now previously voluntary) Water Wise Rules will now be canon, as all garden hoses will be required to have a trigger nozzle or a similar accoutrement that curtails any unintended overflow.

More than 85% of Greater Sydney's water supply relies on rain. Permits will be needed to fill a new or renovated pool greater than 10,000 litres.

A range of exemptions will also be available to businesses in situations where water is critical to their operations.

However, there will be a three-month grace period before fines were imposed.

Anyone caught breaking the rules can be fined up to $220 (£120), while non-exempted businesses doing so could face financial penalties of up to $550 (£300).
