Water reservoirs

Council manages various water supplies to provide the community with sufficient safe drinking water. If you want to know how much water your local water supply has currently, our live data will give you the answer.

Water reservoir levels

You can view below the reservoir water levels over the previous two days for all except the Westport water reservoir. The graph for this reservoir displays the previous seven days.

The percentage indicates how much water the reservoir currently has.

When are water restrictions put in place for Westport and Carters Beach?

Once the water reservoir falls below 70% a restricted water use order is put in place. If the water supply falls below 50% an essential water use order is issued. These orders remain in place until the reservoir has sufficiently recovered. 

These will be issued on our water notices, facebook page and print, radio or email if required.
