The water restrictions that were put in place in mid-December 2018 in Bridport, Tasmania, have now been lifted, having achieved their purpose in reducing non-essential water use over the busy summer months.
TasWater Corporate and Community Relations General Manager, Juliet Mercer, thanked Bridport residents for their efforts.
“It has been a very hot and dry summer period so even though the restrictions have been lifted, we encourage all Tasmanians to continue to keep their water use down.
“Water is a very precious resource and summer is not over yet so it is important we use it wisely.”
The Stage 1 restrictions were put in place at Bridport to reduce the demand on the system during the influx of summer holiday visitors and to conserve supply due to the lower rainfall during winter and spring.
