Sydney Water advises the current level 3 restrictions are now eased to allow vehicle and house washing with a hose fitted with a trigger nozzle. Sydneysiders have saved more than 415 billion litres of water since restrictions were introduced in October 2003. Recent rainfall has kept dam levels consistently above 65 per cent. They are now at 66.5 per cent. Washing vehicles, boats, caravans, trucks, trailers and other vehicles and homes will now be permitted, but only with a trigger nozzle. Other level 3 restrictions will remain. Easing the restrictions will have only a minor impact on Sydney's overall water use. Sydney Water estimates that the new measures will increase water consumption by less than a half of one per cent a year. Sydney's water consumption will still be at least 15 per cent less than the 10-year average and will remain at the lowest levels since the late 1960s. Tests by Sydney Water found using a hose with a trigger nozzle instead of a regular hose saves water. A trigger nozzle stops the water flow when the hose is not in use, saving around 20 per cent of water on an average car wash at home.
