We are now in Level 1 restrictions
Due to increased dam levels, we've eased restrictions back to Level 1. It’s still too early to tell if the recent rain is just temporary relief from drought or a sign that things are improving, but we need to always remember that water is our most precious resource.
The restrictions apply to everyone in Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the Illawarra. This includes all residents and businesses.
Please remember, we all still need to do our bit to save water.
