More restrictions for Monto

THE North Burnett Regional Council has announced Monto has moved to Level Two water restrictions.

Works and services director Bob Spencer said council was closely monitoring the water situation and was calling for all residents to help conserve their precious resource.

“We’ve had to move to Level Two as the bores just aren’t recovering as quickly as we had hoped.

We need to achieve an average of 209 litres per person per day,” Mr Spencer said.

“We need to give Three Moon Creek Aquifer time to recharge.
"We hope the community understands and works together to conserve water,” he said.

The restrictions include: no sprinklers at any time; micro spray and drip systems on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday between 4pm and 7pm; newly constructed ponds, pools or spas must not be filled; water must not be used to clean vehicles (except by cans or buckets for rinsing only); fountains must not operate.
