The Hervey Bay supply network was thrust into Level 3 water restrictions earlier this month.

Fraser Coast Mayor George Seymour said at the time that insufficient rain had fallen in the Lenthall’s Dam catchment area and the storage facility was less than 50 per cent capacity.

Level 3 restrictions target outdoor water use.

However, recent bouts of heavy rainfall have helped boost dam levels.

The Hervey Bay supply network includes areas stretching from Burrum Heads and Howard across to River Heads.
