Saving water is everyone's responsibility. From 11 December 2010, Permanent Conservation Measures water restrictions apply to all residences and businesses connected to the Toowoomba Bulk Water Supply and to the town water supplies within the Greenmount Service area which includes Greenmount, Cambooya, Vale View, Wyreema and Hodgson Vale.
Water from the reticulated (town) supply system is permitted to be used for building construction purposes ONLY when applied using a bucket or through a hand held hose or a high pressure water cleaning unit and provided that the construction site is attended at all times when water is being used on the site.
