As I have said before, I think that daytime watering should be banned almost all the time anyways. It is a complete waist of water to be watering in the heat of the day and the Townsville City Council had finally agreed.
There is now no watering allowed between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm in Townsville.
Although these measures might seem quite strict for Townsville, in reality they are nothing compared to the total ban on watering that they are considering for down in Brisbane right now. Australia is currently in what some are calling the worst drought in 100-years. So that will have to lead to some pretty drastic action needing to be taken.
