Level 1 Water Restrictions apply

Due to increased dam levels, Sydney Water have eased restrictions back to Level 1.

The restrictions apply to everyone in Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the Illawarra. This includes all residents and businesses.

Water restrictions target the outdoor use of drinking water, but there are some indoor water uses that are subject to restrictions, such as filling indoor swimming pools and operating car wash businesses in shopping centre car parks.

Please remember, we all still need to do our bit to save water.
