Buchanan says water levels at reservoirs which serve the Kingston and St Andrew area have been falling continuously since the advent of the drought.

He says the rate of decline in water levels has been contained since the introductions of the restrictions.

However, Buchanan says the situation remains serious at the Mona Reservoir and Hermitage Dam.
