Level 2 water restrictions will apply in Hunters Hill from December 10, 2019.

The restrictions apply to everyone in Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the Illawarra. This includes all residents and businesses.

Sydney Water says it comes as the Bureau of Meteorology predicts a hot summer, with no forecast for significant rain.

Water restrictions target outdoor water use, but there are some indoor water uses that are subject to restrictions, such as filling indoor swimming pools and water features, and operating car wash businesses in shopping centre car parks.

Using drinking water for firefighting, testing and related activities is not restricted.

Level 2 water restrictions:

– You can only use a watering can or bucket to water your garden before 10am and after 4pm.
– You can only use drip irrigation or smart watering systems for a maximum of 15 minutes a day before 10am and after 4pm.
– You can only top-up an existing pool or spa, using a hose fitted with a trigger nozzle, watering can or bucket for a maximum of 15 minutes a day. You can only do this to replace water lost through evaporation, not to replace water deliberately removed from the pool or spa.
– You can only wash your vehicles with a bucket and sponge.
– You need a permit to fill new or renovated pools and spas that hold more than 500 litres.

Fines of $220 apply to individuals and $550 for businesses.

You can save thousands of litres of water by fixing leaks and installing water efficient devices.
