Water is a precious resource and we recognise the need to use it wisely.
Permanent Water Saving Rules are a set of common-sense rules to reduce water demand and encourage us to water efficiently. These rules are uniform across Victoria and they form part of our Permanent Water Saving Plan.
In times of severe drought, we may introduce staged water restrictions to ensure water supply and sustainability in our service area.
Current water restrictions
Goulburn Valley Water has introduced Stage 2 water restrictions to customers supplied by the Euroa system under GVW's Bylaw No. 512.
Restrictions are in effect from Thursday, 11 April 2019 until further notice. Towns affected are Euroa and Violet Town.
Stage 2 water restrictions will no longer be in place in the Kilmore district as of Thursday, 7 November 2019.
Restrictions have officially been lifted and the Permanent Water Saving Rules now apply for residents in Kilmore, Kilmore East, Wandong, Heathcote Junction and Upper Plenty.
