Mandatory Water Ban in Effect

Impact_Sprinkler_Mechanism_2A mandatory water ban is effective immediately in Hamilton, the Hamilton Water Department has declared.

The water ban was enacted after three consecutive days where the Ipswich River was below levels adequate to protect stream flow for aquatic life and ensure a sustainable drinking water supply.

It means that all outside mechanical water use is prohibited in Hamilton and hand-held watering is allowed only between the hours of 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. Residents are also required to limit all non-essential water use.
