Some residents are calling for the early introduction of water restrictions after MidCoast Water warned restrictions could be introduced within the next two months.
“Water restrictions may be necessary if we don’t receive some solid rainfall in the next four weeks,” MidCoast Council water services director, Brendan Guiney said.
People took to the Great Lakes Advocate Facebook page to share their thoughts on the issue:
‘With school holidays starting and tourists coming to town, do it now,’ Pete Smith wrote.
‘Was talking about water restrictions today – yes, do it now – don't wait,’ Commented Gail Ellis
Dennise Coates believed the early introduction was a good idea too.
