Water Restrictions

Current Restrictions

Wingecarribee water restrictions were removed on 1 March 2020 as a result of record rainfalls. 

Although water restrictions are currently not in place, if we all do our bit and save a little, together we'll make a big difference. Council's water-wise initiatives remain in place all year round regardless of water storage levels.
