Coonabarabran Water Report - 2 January 2018

Hot weather and low rainfall over the Timor Dam catchment area has continued to reduce the water level of the Dam, which is now at 36% capacity.  With dropping water levels in the dam and continued high demand, Level 4 restrictions for water consumers in Coonabarabran remain in place. 


Water Saving Tip of the Week

Many plants are tougher than you think and will go for quite long periods without additional watering.  This also has the effect of training your plants to be more sustainable.  Less frequent watering forces roots down to find water, making the plants less reliant on surface water and better able to stand hot, dry days.  Before you even consider watering, push aside the mulch, stick your finger into the soil and if it is moist below the surface, you don’t need to water.  Also, check the four-day forecast at the Bureau of Meteorology.  If there’s rain in the forecast, let the rain do the watering for you.


For a range of water saving tips for residents and businesses, and for full details of Level 4 water restrictions, please refer to Council’s website www.warrumbungle.nsw.gov.au.
