Boulia Shire relaxes water restrictions

Boulia Shire Council has said that due to “unprecedented high demand” for water, the town bore’s water system, which consists of several bore heads, has been running non-stop since before Christmas. 

However while the council says the level of the bores are still under pressure to keep up with the demand, they have issued a relaxation in restrictions to enable sprinkling in the morning and evening.

Sprinkers can go from 6-10am and 6-10pm but residents should not use several sprinklers together.
