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.
Water Restriction Notice - Level 2
Notice is hereby given under Regulation 137 of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005, which permits the use of water to be restricted in the Parkes Shire Local Government area if there is a shortage of supply. This notice shall take effect from 2am on Wednesday 16 January 2019 and shall remain in effect until varied by further notice.
