It's getting hot out here! With summer on the way, pools to fill, and thirsty gardens to quench, it's easy to loose track of how much water you're really using. For tips on how you can be smarter with your water use visit: www.wdrc.info/waterwise/
With water restrictions in place, Council also conducts regular patrols to ensure customers are doing the right thing under their levels.
And they're off! Our Duke of Edinburgh's International Award participants are on their way to Moreton Bay Environmental Education Centre for four days of observation, exploration and adventure as part of completing their Bronze Level Award.
