Lower Murray Water advises customers in the Red Cliffs township connected to the drinking water supply that the emergency outdoor use restrictions initiated on Sunday 15 December have been lifted.

The Red Cliffs water treatment plant and storages are now operating at normal levels. “I would like to thank our customers who responded positively resulting in a noticeable reduction in demand that enabled Lower Murray Water staff to return our treatment plant and storages to normal operating levels as soon as possible” said Lower Murray Water Managing Director, Mr Anthony Couroupis.

Customers in Red Cliffs can now return to the Stage 1 Water Restrictions requirements. Customers are reminded that Stage 1 Water Restrictions apply to private, public, commercial and industrial gardens, including sporting grounds. Allocated specific times for watering of garden and lawn areas under Stage 1 are determined by odds and evens property numbering and the corresponding day of the month, between the hours of 6am and 10am, 6pm and 10pm and midnight and 4am. Hand-held watering with the use of water saving trigger nozzle is still allowed at any time under Stage 1 Water Restrictions.

Lower Murray Water will continue to provide regular updates on water supply issues via the website, social media channels, radio, print and television.
