Residents asked to be water wise

WITH low water levels because of a lack of rain in catchment areas for Childers and Woodgate Beach, Bundaberg Regional Council has asked residents to be water wise during the holiday period.

“We’re asking people in Childers and Woodgate to think about water usage,” deputy mayor Tony Ricciardi said.

“There are lots of ways we can save water with very little effort.”

He said there were simple ways to save water, including checking leaks in taps and toilets and repairing them; installing an efficient drip irrigation system; sweeping with a broom instead of using a hose; and reading the water meter weekly to keep consumption under control.
