Water restrictions rise to Level 2

Townsville City Council issued level 2 water restrictions October 27, 2015, as we head into another dry summer on the back of two dry wet seasons.

LEVEL 2: residential areas are allowed to handwater at anytime, and use sprinklers 6—8pm ONLY, under the odds and evens system.

  • Even numbered houses – Tuesday & Saturday
  • Odd numbered houses – Wednesday & Sunday


Accordinating to council's website, we are currently going through one of the driest periods on record. The weather bureau forecasts that the strong El Nino cycle we're in means the dry spell is likely to continue for a while.

Fines apply to residents who disregard council's water restrictions.
