As Townsville Water Crisis Worsens, New C. Vella Guide Offers Conservation Tips

New guide at website shows how residents and businesses can easily go beyond city's current level-three usage restrictions and help preserve water supplies, C. Vella Plumbing & Electrical reports

With Townsville City Council getting ready to consider the imposition of level-four restrictions, Townsville's water supply troubles are reaching a critical point. As the Plumbers Townsville residents and businesses trust the most, C Vella Plumbing & Electrical has just published a new online guide aimed at empowering readers to help.

Since Townsville locals use, on average, 70 percent more water than people in similarly sized cities elsewhere around Australia, there are plenty of effective ways of pitching in to help conserve this increasingly precious resource. From mulching in the garden to making use of shower timers, the new C Vella Plumbing & Electricial guide details proven, accessible ways of cutting back on water usage. With water levels in Townsville's Ross River Dam catchment at a fraction of capacity, every little bit of conservation helps, and the new guide will make it easy for anyone to contribute.

"We truly love this city "Townsville" and North Queensland, and that's why we're so determined to do everything possible to help with what has become a true water supply crisis," said C Vella Plumbing & Electrical founder, owner, and manager Caleb Vella, "With fines of hundreds of dollars for Townsville residents and nearly two thousand for businesses, ignoring the city's water restriction rules is clearly a bad idea in more respects than one. Even so, locals and commercial users can help out in other ways, as well.

The brand-new guide at our website contains a number of simple, effective tips that anyone can use to save water. As a plumber, Gas and Electrician Townsville businesses and residents have been so generous in supporting, we're glad to be able to give something back in this way and others."

Standing a little over twenty kilometres from the Townsville city centre, the Ross River Dam is Townsville's main municipal source of fresh, potable water. With the Lake Ross catchment area covering over 750 square kilometres, the 233,000 megaliters the reservoir could hold at full capacity would meet the city's needs for years if the most ambitious long-term water conservation goals where met.

Unfortunately, the water behind the dam is far below capacity, having dropped almost continually over the last few years. With the dam level now standing at around 15 percent, level-three water restrictions are in place and significant fines are being issued to residents and businesses that fail to comply.

Created specifically in response to this ongoing water-supply emergency, the new C Vella Plumbing & Electrical guide to conservation focuses on practical tips that anyone can put to use. Readers will find it easier to stay in compliance with the city's water-usage restrictions, whether they remain at level three or are heightened to the maximum level of four in the future.

In addition, the guide includes many other ways by which residents and business operators can conserve even more and help stretch the city's precious water supplies farther. As a plumbing, electrical, and Emergency Plumber Townsville locals and business owners consistently recommend to others, C Vella is well-positioned to offer this kind of helpful, timely advice. The new guide is available now at the C Vella Plumbing & Electrical website.
