If you are on a Restricted supply, you will get a pre-determined amount of water delivered to a supply tank on your property over a 24-hour period (through a restrictor).Restricted supplies are usually provided in township and rural areas where there is limited reticulation capacity and a higher likelihood of extraordinary use of the water supply.
A Restricted supply is sometimes provided to consumers in supply areas that are typically On-Demand. This happens when providing an On-Demand supply to a property would have a negative impact on other consumers on the supply – for example, it would reduce pressure or availability of supply.
If you are on a restricted supply, you should know about:
- Storing water
- Looking after the restrictor
- Cleaning the tank
- Relocating the point of supply
- Theft and illegal connections
