As a region we're experiencing the lowest water levels in our dams in over two decades. Level 2 water restrictions apply to all properties connected to Hunter Water's water supply network in the Cessnock Local Government Area. 

At Level 2, water restrictions apply to outdoor use and by making small changes to the way you use water at home, we can save a lot. 

Water restrictions apply to all water users who use drinking water sourced from Hunter Water, including residents, business and government.

A Quick Guide to Level 2 Water Restrictions:
