Shoalhaven Water would like to remind our customers that whilst much of our area is looking lush following recent rains, that summer is just around the corner.
The RFS advises we have just started this year’s Bush Fire Danger Period. In a media release on 31 August, the RFS announced that increased grass growth due to recent rain could prove problematic over coming weeks and months, particularly in these areas starting their danger period. The Shoalhaven was one of 21 areas who commenced their Bush Fire Danger Period on Tuesday 1 September 2020.
Acting Executive Manager of Shoalhaven Water, Robert Horner says; “Saving water around the home is really important in the hotter months. There are many ways that everyone can help save this precious resource by taking small but effective steps in and around homes. Buying water conserving appliances, taking shorter showers and using grey water all make a difference to water consumption.”
