Water Updates - April 2018

Coonabarabran Water Report

24 April 2018

For the week commencing Monday, 23 April 2018, the water level at Timor Dam was 24.8% of dam capacity.

It is expected that outflow from Timor Dam will cease to operate under gravity when the level reaches 20% of capacity. Based on the current depletion rate the cease to gravity flow level will be reached around the start of July 2018. A pump system has been installed to access the water when outflow by gravity is no longer available.
 
Works are continuing on the emergency bores along Timor Road and on infrastructure for raw water delivery at the Water Treatment Plant. This will equip the town of Coonabarabran with emergency water when the Timor Dam is no longer able to provide sufficient water supply.
 
Last week Warrumbungle Shire Council received additional funding for further emergency works on the town’s water supply. The NSW State Government has already contributed $450,000 to undertake pre construction work to establish the emergency bores. On Tuesday, 17 April 2018, they announced a further $525,000 to expand the number of test bores and fit out two (2) of the bores for production.
  
Average daily water consumption over the last five days was 0.67Ml per day. The average daily consumption (Ml per day) recorded over seven (7) days, by week, for the last five (5) weeks is:

Council greatly appreciates the efforts by residents to minimise water usage at this time. Residents are reminded to continue limiting their water usage wherever possible.

Failure to comply with restrictions may result in a fine or disconnection of service. Active patrolling of streets in Coonabarabran, to check compliance with water restrictions, is being undertaken each day.

 

 

Coonabarabran Water Report

16 April 2018

For the week commencing Monday, 16 April 2018, the water level at Timor Dam was 25.2% of dam capacity.
 
It is expected that outflow from Timor Dam will cease to operate under gravity when the level reaches 20% of capacity. Based on the current depletion rate the cease to gravity flow level will be reached around the start of July 2018. A pump system has been installed to access the water when outflow by gravity is no longer available.
 
The town water supply in Coonabarabran is currently being supplemented by four (4) bores and from the Castlereagh River well in Namoi Street. Long term supply from the river well is not expected to meet demand and may not be sustainable if flow in the river ceases.  

Works are continuing on the emergency bores along Timor Road and on infrastructure for raw water delivery at the Water Treatment Plant. This will equip the town of Coonabarabran with emergency water when the Timor Dam is no longer able to provide sufficient water supply.

Average daily water consumption over the last week was 0.74Ml per day.

The average daily consumption (Ml per day) recorded over seven (7) days, by week, for the last six (6) weeks is:

Coonabarabran Water Report

11 April 2018 

For the week commencing Monday, 9 April 2018, the water level at Timor Dam was 25.25% of dam capacity. This is a 0.5% reduction in the last seven (7) days.

It is expected that outflow from Timor Dam will cease to operate under gravity when the level reaches 20% of capacity. Based on the current depletion rate the cease to flow level will be reached around mid-May 2018. A pump out system has been installed to access the water when outflow by gravity is no longer available.
 
Works are continuing on the emergency bores along Timor Road and on infrastructure for raw water delivery at the Water Treatment Plant. This will equip the town of Coonabarabran with emergency water when the Timor Dam is no longer able to provided sufficient water supply.
  
Average daily water consumption over the last week was 0.81Ml per day. No targets have been formally set for average daily consumption, however it is desirable to lower the current consumption rate to an average daily consumption of around 0.45Ml per day.

The average daily consumption (Ml per day) recorded over seven (7) days, by week, for the last six (6) weeks is:

3 April 2018

For the week commencing Monday, 2 April 2018, the water level at Timor Dam was 25.8% of dam capacity. This is a 1.0% reduction in the last seven (7) days.

It is expected that outflow from Timor Dam will cease to operate under gravity when the level reaches 20% of capacity. Based on the current depletion rate the cease to flow level will be reached around mid-May 2018. A pump out system has been installed to access the water when outflow by gravity is no longer available.
 
The town water supply in Coonabarabran continues to be supplemented by four (4) bores and from a river well in Namoi Street. Works are also continuing on the bores along Timor Road and on infrastructure for raw water delivery at the Water Treatment Plant.
 
Water consumers continue to respond well to the onset of low water supplies by reducing consumption. The average daily production of water at the Coonabarabran Water Treatment Plant has continued its downward trend this week.

Average daily water consumption over the last week was 0.72Ml per day. No targets have been formally set for average daily consumption, however it is desirable to lower the current consumption rate to an average daily consumption of around 0.45Ml per day.

The average daily consumption (Ml per day) recorded over seven (7) days, by week, for the last six (6) weeks is:
