Water restrictions will be scaled back from Stage 3 to Stage 2 in the greater Geelong region from Wednesday 1 September 2010.
Residents will be able to water their gardens, vegetable gardens and trees at any time and wash their cars at home for the first time in 4 years. Sporting grounds will also benefit from an additional allocation of water.
The easing of restrictions follows our biggest storage increase in over 5 years.
Record capital investments and community water-saving efforts have been rewarded.
Detailed information on Stage 2 water restrictions will be posted online next week.
