Water Conservation - Due to dry, warm weather conditions, the Council is experiencing very heavy demand on water supplies throughout the district, more specifically in Woodend, Cust and the Oxford urban water supply. Until the dry conditions ease, residents are asked to minimise usage of water for gardens and lawns - this will help to avoid mandatory water restrictions. Your help would be appreciated.
