TasWater and the Bureau of Meteorology are encouraging Tasmanians to be mindful of their water this summer.
With Tasmania facing a wetter summer due to a La Nina occurring over eastern Australia, TasWater's Luc Richards said that significant rain events make managing water supplies challenging.
He said wet conditions may increase the risk of dirty water in catchments and storages.
"Wet weather events can impact on the water treatment processes and sometimes requires more intensive treatment to ensure water continues to meet the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines," Mr Richards said.
"We need everyone to play their part and that's why we are encouraging Tasmanians to be conscious of their water use especially as we prepare for the upcoming summer season."
He said the wet conditions may assist in reducing outdoor water use, however, it may increase the risk of dirty water in catchments.
