Do Your Part - Be Water Smart
Council is committed to working with the Bega Valley Shire community to preserve our precious water resources. By being water wise, we can all help make our water supply more available for those times when it is really needed - like during droughts and hot summers.
The Current Situation
Despite below average rainfall across the Shire since late Autumn, Bega Valley Shire Council has not needed to introduce formal water restrictions to date. The latest climate outlook issued by the Bureau of Meteorology indicates above average temperatures and below average rainfall continuing well into Summer and, for this reason, it's important to continue being water wise during the coming months. If we are water wise now, we can work together to reduce the likelihood of needing water restrictions in the future.
