How often would you be willing to be on level 3 or 4 water restrictions?
This is just one of the questions we are asking residents as part of the Water Supply Security Strategy project.
Council wants to understand how residents feel about increasing water security through the use of water restrictions and options for future water supplies.
It only takes a few minutes to complete our survey which includes a number of questions around the frequency and duration of water restrictions and options for improving water security across the Fraser Coast.
To take the survey head to the Have Your Say section and click on the survey link.
Survey closes Sunday 14 March.
Expressions of interest have now closed. The panel will now to be selected with our first session to be held later in January.
