The prohibition notice announced by the National Water Commission is in effect.
This means water supplied by drought affected systems must not be used for activities that require a considerable or excessive amount of the commodity.
Any person who contravenes this order is guilty of an offence and liable for a fine or imprisonment.
Matthew Samuda, Minister with responsibility for Water and Climate Change, says the affected communities will be advised about the hard hit systems as a result of the continued dry spell.
