Tourists urged to use water wisely over Easter
East Gippsland Water is asking visitors to the region for the busy Easter holidays to please ensure they use water efficiently during their stay.
Recent rain events and a steady reduction in water use have brought a welcome improvement in the water supply situation for customers across the region. While this is promising there is no room for complacency and the water corporation is already planning for another potentially dry summer.
East Gippsland Water’s Managing Director, Steve McKenzie, said, “The latest very dry situation reminds us that we are facing an increasingly unpredictable climate and water outlook.
“We are heading into a traditionally busy time for the region with Easter, which is very important for the local economy. It also puts an extra strain on water supplies. We want visitors to have a great time and ask that they also follow some simple water saving tips. In this way any impact on water supplies can be kept to a minimum.”
