Level 1 Water Restrictions – Bingara, Gravesend, North Star and Warialda Water Supplies

 Starting from Monday 7th January 2019

The use of sprinklers or fixed hand held hoses are prohibited between 8am and 8pm

Reason: All Gwydir Shire water supplies are struggling to keep up with demands and reservoir levels are falling to a critical level where action needs to taken. There has been no recent rainfall and high daily temperatures are drying things out very quickly. Residents need to restrict their use of water to the night time hours to ensure the most effective use of the water.

Estimated Duration of Restrictions: Until end of February 2019

For further information please contact Council’s Town Utilities Section on

Updates will be posted on web page and Council’s Facebook page

Please note water levels are monitored on a daily basis and a higher level of restriction maybe introduced if supply levels can’t be maintained.
