Clarence Valley Council introduced permanent water conservation measures on 1 September 2007.
Residents are reminded that permanent level 1 water restrictions apply to all properties on town water supply in the Clarence Valley. Details of Level 1 Water Restrictions are as follows:
The community's awareness and contribution to water efficiency is acknowledged and appreciated - every drop counts. These measures not only conserve water by eliminating the inefficient practice of using sprinklers and fixed hoses during the middle of the day when evaporation is at its greatest, but protect our waterways from polluted runoff. River flows and consumption rates are published each day in 'The Daily Examiner'.
Under the Local Government Act an on-the-spot fine of $220.00 may be imposed for breach of the water restriction regulations.
