LEVEL 3 water restrictions are now a thing in Hervey Bay.
Residents from areas stretching from Burrum Heads and Howard to River Heads are tightening their taps to save water.
The Fraser Coast Regional Council implemented Level 3 water restrictions on the Hervey Bay supply network today.
Mayor George Seymour said not enough rain had fallen in the correct areas.
As a result, Lenthall’s Dam is currently sitting at below 50 per cent capacity.
