You can also zoom in/out using the fly wheel on your mouse.

 **To reduce demands on our drinking water, Council uses recycled water to irrigate some of the local sporting fields, public gardens and open space facilities.   Recycled Water carts are being used for trees and garden beds in Port Macquarie CBD by Council staff and contractors - Recycled water carts display stickers on the tanks ‘Recycled water in use’.
