Water restrictions lifted after heavy rain
Cairns Regional Council advises that water restrictions have been lifted.
More than 200mm of rain fell over Copperlode Falls Dam yesterday, with the dam now at 83 per cent capacity, above the trigger for Level 1 Restrictions.
Residents are reminded that permanent water conservation measures remain in place year-round, using an “odds and evens” system as follows:
Odd-numbered houses permitted to use sprinklers on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday between the hours of 5am - 9am and 5pm - 9pm.
Even-numbered houses permitted to use sprinklers on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday between the hours of 5am - 9am and 5pm - 9pm.
No sprinkler use is permitted on Monday.
Hand-held hoses with a trigger nozzle, watering cans and buckets can be used at any time.
