Water bans to stay permanently

‘Permanent water restrictions for Sydney have been announced by the NSW Government in a bid to combat climate change.

Called Long-term Water Saving Rules, they will remain in effect regardless of dam levels or downgrades of the current water restrictions scheme.

The rules include restrictions on watering between 10am and 4pm (AEST), the fitting of trigger nozzles on hoses and no hosing of hard surfaces.

Premier Morris Iemma said today the permanent restrictions reflected the Government’s commitment to conserving water in the long term.’
