Water savings and restrictions

Without significant rain, the Tweed may head into water restrictions. It’s time for all of us to save water now. 

Soak up some great water-saving tips for indoors and outdoors - when we each save a little, we all save a lot. Together, we can delay restrictions and make our limited water supply last as long as possible.

Water carting from Tyalgum and Uki is always banned. Water carting from elsewhere in the Tweed to other local government areas is banned when restrictions are in force.
