The Southern Downs will remain on EXTREME water level restrictions with a reduction to the limit on water being purchased from the region’s standpipes to 2000 litres per week.

Rural residents accessing drinking standard water from the Stanthorpe and Warwick standpipes will now be limited to purchasing a maximum of 2000 litres per week for any individual residential address in the Southern Downs.

Water can be purchased with a single or multiple collections with access to standpipes to occur between 8am and 3pm.

“Low dam levels, dry conditions and excessive water consumption mean the region will remain on extreme level water restrictions for the foreseeable future," Southern Downs Mayor Tracy Dobie said. “Water restrictions are vital to sustaining and conserving the region’s precious water supplies while the region is in drought."
