SEQ - hosing allowed as water restrictions relaxed ...

Southeast Queenslanders can finally get the hose out of the shed as tough drought-induced water restrictions are lifted from next month.

The changes mean some households could use up to 80 litres more water a day per person.

They also allow residents to water their lawns and gardens and wash their cars with hoses before 10am and after 4pm on any day except Mondays.

The changes, to be introduced on December 1, bring the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast into line with the rest of the region.

Both coasts are using an average of more than 200 litres of water per resident a day, significantly more than in Brisbane, Logan and Ipswich. Sunshine Coast water usage is averaging between 230 litres and 260 litres a day.
