Stroud water not restricted…yet

MidCoast Water is urging Stroud residents to use water wisely during the summer months, particularly as the region experiences a prolonged dry period.

Residents are asked to refrain from using water outdoors between the hours of 10am and 4pm. You’ll find more tips on how to save water here.

For the first time in more than a decade, MidCoast Water has had to impose water  restrictions in a bid to slow down demand on supplies in communities supplied by the Manning Supply Scheme.  MidCoast Water provides water to approximately 500 customers in Stroud and Stroud Road drawing water from the Karuah River.

A MidCoast Water spokesperson said that while there were no restrictions on the Stroud supply at the moment, the situation could change if the hot, dry weather continued.

TV tower update

Great Lakes councillor Karen Hutchinson has provided this update this morning on the Booral NBN tower…

‘Bob Baldwin’s office has just contacted me with an update on the Booral NBN tower. This tower will be activated between July and September 2014.  As this is a Federal Government project we will receive updates from Bob Baldwin’s office. I will keep you updated on this and any future towers for our area as information comes to hand.’

    Thank you to Cr Hutchinson for update on proposed “turn-on” of Booral NBN tower.

    As this project was begun by the previous Fed Labor govt would you spell out for us the actual service we will get DELIVERED DIRECTLY TO OUR HOMES if cutbacks to NBN happen that the current Fed Lib Govt now want to make?
