Works to demobilise the Hickson Road remediation site are progressing well.  The next phase of works includes removing the overhead duct bridge across Hickson Road at the north end of the works compound.
 
This work will take one night to complete and will require a road closure  – please refer to the attached notification for further details.

 Water Restrictions to Start Across Sydney
 
The restrictions have been introduced by the NSW Government to protect Sydney’s water supply from drought conditions.
Under the Level 1 water restrictions residents and businesses are not able to:
  • use standard sprinklers and watering systems at any time
  • leave hoses running unattended
  • wash vehicles and buildings with a hose that isn’t fitted with a trigger nozzle or high-pressure cleaning equipment
  • clean hard surfaces such as paths, driveways and paved areas with a hose as part of general clean.
Water restrictions are enforceable and penalties apply. Fines of $220 will apply to individuals and $550 for businesses who don’t follow the restrictions. There will be a three-month grace period before fines apply. Fines will not be issued until after 1 September 2019.

Exemptions will be available for non-residential customers with outdoor water use as their core business.

Minister for Water, Property and Housing Melinda Pavey said Sydney is seeing some of the lowest inflows into its dams since the 1940s.

“The Bureau of Meteorology’s latest forecast is predicting below-average rainfall and higher temperatures for June to August, which are key drivers of stronger water demand,” Mrs Pavey said.

“Regional NSW has been experiencing a record drought. Water restrictions in Sydney mean that households across NSW are doing their bit to conserve water.”

A Note Regarding the New National Services for Carers:
 
I would like to introduce you to the Carer Gateway Counselling Service. The service is a new, free phone counselling service for Carers, operating nationally from July 1 and proudly managed by Catholic Care.
 
The only criteria to be eligible for the service are as follows:
 
  • The person is in a caring role. This could be caring and/or providing support for a person with a disability, mental health issue, substance misuse issue, dementia or caring for somebody who is frail and/or aged
  • The Carer must be over 18-years of age
  • The Carer must be unpaid, ie, they are not employed by an agency as a care giver. There are no restrictions for those on carer payments
 
We encourage all carers to give us a call, no matter what their circumstances, so they can be assessed for eligibility and/or referred onto other services as appropriate.
 
The Counselling Service is open from 8am to 6pm weekdays and Carers can call the service on 1800 422 737 and select option 1 to self-refer.
 
I have attached a flyer plus an A4 brochure which provides information on how to access the Carer Gateway Service. We kindly ask that you provide this material to carers so they too, can learn about the service. If you would like hardcopies of the brochure, please contact us and we will send them out to you.
 
I have also attached a flyer for the Carer Gateway Community Forum which provides online connection and peer support for Carers. This Service is available for Carers to use from the Carer Gateway website – www.carergateway.gov.au. Many Carers are already participating in the site and gaining support by sharing their experiences.
 
Please call me on 1800 227 301 if you would like any further information about these new Carer support services.
