The US military is testing water-penetrating bullets, reportedly so Navy SEALs can shoot from underwater

  The US military is testing water-penetrating bullets, reportedly so Navy SEALs can shoot from underwater Bullets that can shoot from underwater are being tested by the US Department of Defence's Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office. They work by creating a gas bubble around the tip of the bullet, reducing drag when a bullet is shot through water. Typical bullets can travel just a few feet through the water before they're slowed to a stop.The bullets, manufactured by DSG Technologies, are tipped with tungsten and create an gas bubble to allow the bullet to move rapidly through the water. Ordinary bullets don't have this supercavitating effect, which means they move much more slowly through water.

The stricter rules were recently announced after it was discovered the dam level for the greater Sydney catchment was sitting around 46.2 per cent - the lowest in the past 10 years.

Sydney last saw level two water restrictions in 2003. They were upgraded to level three in 2005 due to the Millenium drought.

In 2005, level three water restrictions were enforced in Sydney, where hoses were banned except for two days a week, watering systems and new swimming pools were forbidden and motorists could only wash their cars with buckets.

The restrictions were scrapped four years later in 2009.

Warragamba Dam supplies water to more than 3.7million people living in Sydney and the lower Blue Mountains but its reserves are barely above 47.1 per cent capacity.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian had previously expected to enforce level two water restrictions when dam levels reached 40 per cent.

'Given the rapid rate of decline of our dam levels we have decided to enact the next level of restrictions sooner than planned,' she recently said.

'We're experiencing one of the most severe droughts on record and we expect introducing Level 2 restrictions to save 78.5 gigalitres of water per year.'

Experts fear even tougher restrictions could hit Sydneysiders again.

'You can never accurately predict Sydney's water levels because we may get some sudden unexpected rain - but on the current trajectory we could require level three restrictions by 2021,' UNSW Engineering Professor Stuart Khan recently told Daily Mail Australia.

'Level three restrictions would involve very limited outdoor use of water.'

Professor Khan says Sydneysiders can do their bit to minimise usage by reusing grey water collected from showers, baths, sinks and washing machines.

'Grey water is the portion of waste water that comes from some of the less contaminated sources of water in a home,' he told the Sydney Morning Herald.

'It most commonly comes from a clothes washing machine, but can also include baths and showers.'

The NSW government re-introduced water restrictions in June to protect Sydney’s supply as the city experiences one of the lowest inflows into its dams since the 1940s.

'More than 85 per cent of Greater Sydney’s water supply relies on rain. This means that our water is in short supply during prolonged droughts,' the Sydney Water website states.

It comes after NSW government tried to boost Sydney's water levels this year by turning on the city's desalination plant in Kurnell in January.

There are some restrictions in place in all states except Tasmania and the Northern Territory.

Western Australia, the ACT, Victoria and SA have permanent restrictions in place.

Tips for gardening during level 2 water restrictions:

Flower Power horticulturalist Octavia Jones says while reducing water usage is important in times of drought, there are still ways to maintain your garden.

* Water efficiently: When watering with a bucket or watering can (before 10am and after 4pm) make sure you water direct to the root zone, at the stem of the plant. It's also important to water plants deeply, less often as it helps strengthen water uptake and teaches plants to expect less water.

* Avoid watering foliage: Not only does it reduce evaporation of water, it also helps prevent pests and disease.

* Add a health tonic for plants: Adding a seaweed solution to the watering can or bucket will help plants with water retention and remain hydrated for longer.

* Install drip irrigation: During level 2 water restrictions in Sydney, a drip line irrigation system can be used for a maximum of 15 mins a day before 10am and after 4pm.

* Install a Timer Tap: Installing a timer tap to your drip irrigation will ensure efficient watering at designated times - meaning no wasted water (or money) and consistent watering for your healthy plants.
