Council says the watering schedule will now allow for Surat residents to water their garden during days when more water pressure is available.

The new restrictions begin from Saturday, 7 April, the watering hours that were previously allocated to Mondays will be moved to Saturday (west) and Sunday (east).

This will provide for 8 hours total watering time for both east and west on their respective weekend watering day.

Council says this will also assist with water pressure.

The new Surat watering schedule to commence on Saturday, 7 April 2018 is as follows:
• Wednesday & Friday – East may water (6am – 8am & 6pm – 8pm)
• Tuesday & Thursday – West may water (6am – 8am & 6pm – 8pm)
• *Saturday – West may water (6am – 10am & 4pm – 8pm)
• *Sunday – East may water (6am – 10am & 4pm – 8pm).

* New watering times. Residents are encouraged to keep conserving water around the home where possible. Council will continue to closely monitor water usage and amend restrictions as required.
