Times of drought over?

On 27 August 2020, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) announced that we are headed for a possibly wetter-than-average period with a 70% likelihood.

Winter 2020 was in the top 10 warmest winters on record. It started out very dry, but ended with more rainfall than usual. August was the wettest August on records for Australia since 2016 and now we are likely to have wetter than average conditions over the spring season.

This is great news, but it is good to remember that in late 2019 severe water restrictions (level 2) were implemented in greater Sydney area when the rapid rate of decline of our dam levels reached 40%.

All water utilities across Australia are faced with increased population growth and extended periods of low rainfall and it has caused challenges for all Australian urban water supplies. The levels in major east coast storages diminished to the lowest levels in decades.

During times of drought, local councils work with water infrastructure authorities and water utilities services to action water-efficiency measures and support to residents and businesses to capture and store rainwater and greywater. Play your part in reducing leaks by maintaining your property’s water service.

Water is precious, especially during times of drought so it is important that leaks and breaks are responded to as quickly as possible to reduce the amount of water lost through leaks and seepage from water retaining structures such as holding tanks, dams, catchments, reservoirs and water infrastructure pipelines.


It is best to act quickly as most leaks tend to get worse over time.
