Douglas Shire Council is pleased to confirm the relaxing of water restriction measures across the shire from Level 3 to Level 2 from 2 July 2024.

The replacement of filters at the Mossman and Whyanbeel treatment plants, and other upgrades to the network, has contributed to the change.

Douglas Shire Mayor Lisa Scomazzon said she was pleased the community was returning to Level 2 restrictions.

“Council thanks the community for following these restrictions while the water network has undergone repairs and improvements,” Mayor Scomazzon.

“The new filters being used at Council’s treatment plants are Australian-made and are designed to perform even when sediments levels are high.”

A new 120-metre replacement pipe, which reconnects Port Douglas with its main water supply (Crees Road reservoir), and the 1.4km interconnector pipe between Mossman and Whyanbeel has also improved the shire’s water security and Council’s confidence to relax restrictions.
