Coonabarabran Water Report – Monday, 12 March 2018

For the week commencing Monday, 12 March 2018, the water level at Timor Dam was 27.9% of dam capacity.

Due to ongoing dry conditions, dropping water supplies and high usage, Level 6 water restrictions are now in place. These restrictions will be in place until further notice.

Although the average daily consumption over the last seven (7) days has dropped, the average daily usage is still higher than it needs to be.

In the week commencing Monday, 12 March 2018, the average daily consumption was 0.9ml/day. This is a reduction in average daily consumption of 0.1ml/day.

The average daily consumption recorded over seven (7) days, by week for the last four (4) weeks is:

Average Daily Consumption By Week: 









Council advises that the average daily consumption will need to continue to reduce. The aim for average daily consumption is 0.4ml per day.

To help achieve this, residents are asked to limit their water usage wherever possible.

Your efforts to minimise use at this time is greatly appreciated.

Residents are reminded that failure to comply with restrictions may result in a fine or disconnection of your service. Active patrolling of streets in Coonabarabran, to check
compliance with water restrictions, is being undertaken each day.
