Water restrictions update
From 1 October 2020, Level 1 Water Restrictions are no longer in effect across the Maitland Local Government Area.
Level 1 water restrictions are no longer in place. However, the Lower Hunter community are encouraged to maintain their water saving behaviours, that have become the new normal.
Residents are now able to use sprinklers between the morning and evening hours.
Council is committed to continuous assessment of its water usage and the identification of further water saving initiatives.
There are a number of simple changes you can make to conserve water at home, these include:
- Limit showers to four minutes and place a bucket in the shower with you to recycle water for use in your garden
- Repair dripping taps and leaking toilets as soon as they are noticed
- Wash your car with a bucket on your lawn so that your grass benefits
- Ensure you water your garden with a hand held nozzle
