Stage 1 water restrictions have been put in place on Tasmania’s east coast as the state battles through an ongoing dry spell.

Starting Monday, Orford and Triabunna will be subject to the restrictions that TasWater hope will alleviate pressure on the water supply, particularly during the busy Easter period.


The restrictions aim to reduce non-essential water use by about 20%, with curfews on using watering systems and limits on the amount of water used to wash vehicles among things that will be implemented.

“Many factors were considered before implementing restrictions for Orford and Triabunna, including the increased demand on the town’s water supply during the annual influx of holiday visitors and the longer-term weather patterns in the region,” TasWater’s Callan Paske said.

“Implementing these restrictions will help us ensure water is available when residents, visitors and businesses turn on their taps.”

“We thank the community for their cooperation to reduce water use and encourage all Tasmanians to consider their water use, as it is a finite resource.”

People across Launceston, Bridport and Lady Barron have also been reminded to continue to conserve water to avoid restrictions.
