Watering Times and Conservation

All Charters Towers Water Consumers are reminded of the following:

Non Restricted Watering

Handheld hoses can be used by all on any day and any time, but may not be left unattended.

Restricted Watering

For all other watering:

  • No sprinklers or fixed irrigation systems can be used on Mondays.
  • Odd numbered residences/premises have been allocated Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday as watering days.
  • Even numbered residences/premises have been allocated Wednesday, Friday and Sunday as watering days.
  • Sprinklers and fixed irrigation systems can only be used between the hours of 4:00pm and 8:00am.  This means that on the allocated watering day for your property, you can water 'Midnight to 8:00am' and '4:00pm to Midnight'.
  • No sprinklers or fixed irrigation systems are to be used between the hours of 8:00am and 4:00pm on any day.

The above information does not apply to recycled water or private bores.
