Why we need restrictions

Water conservation helps safeguard our long-term supply.

To effectively manage water supply and security for our residents, Parkes Shire Council implements restrictions on water usage under the Local Government Regulation, to ensure water supply is preserved in times of drought or other water scarcity.
