Publish Date 16/09/2019

It's time to love water and save your 4!

As a region we're experiencing the lowest water levels in our dams in over two decades. Level 1 water restrictions apply to everyone in the Lower Hunter - including Port Stephens -  from this Monday, 16 September 2019. This means:

  • outdoor watering before 10am or after 4pm with trigger nozzle
  • all hoses must have a trigger nozzle
  • no hosing of hard surfaces
  • washing vehicles on grass using a trigger nozzle
  • no sprinklers

Hunter Water are calling on all residents to Save Your 4 by using 4 buckets of water a day less. If we all change a little, we can save a lot of water.
