Level 1 Water Restrictions are now in place for the Clarence Valley
Residents are reminded that Level 1 Water Restrictions apply to all properties on town water supply in the Clarence Valley.
Dam level increases reflect the recent local runoff into Shannon Creek Dam. Under the state government water licence this water must be released (we are not allowed to collect this water, and it is released down Shannon Creek). This number does not represent our available water, which remains below 80%. Level 1 water restrictions are still in place
The community's awareness and contribution to water efficiency is acknowledged and appreciated - every drop counts. These measures not only conserve water by eliminating the inefficient practice of using sprinklers and fixed hoses during the middle of the day when evaporation is at its greatest, but protect our waterways from polluted runoff. River flows and consumption rates are published each day in 'The Daily Examiner'.
