DOUGLAS Shire will be on Level 1 Water Restrictions from Monday 21 November 2022 after dry conditions caused a drop in water levels at intakes across the shire.

Douglas Shire Council is encouraging the community to be water wise in the home and backyard to help steady creek levels until rainfall arrives.

This includes only using sprinklers and irrigation systems to water the garden overnight on no more than three days per week.

Further to the dry conditions, the Bureau of Meteorology has forecast heatwave conditions in the region until Wednesday next week.
