Water restriction levels

We have a 4 tier system of water restrictions; permanent conservation measures > medium level > high level > extreme level. Each level is 'triggered' when a water supply falls to a certain capacity. Information on what each of the levels mean is provided in the  'Water restriction levels' article.
