Week commencing 2 September 2019

Level 2 water restrictions

Level 2 Water restrictions are in place across the KEmpsey Shire

Residents and business owners are reminded that Level 2 water restrictions are in place across the Kempsey Shire.

In times of low water availability, water restrictions reduce demand and conserve the amount of water currently in storage. Community support to conserve our scarce water resources is critical.

Visit www.kempsey.nsw.gov.au/restrictions to find out how these changes affect you.
