Water carting underway in Bredbo

Bore water supplying Bredbo passed the NSW Health turbidity limit over the weekend due to the prolonged wet weather. Council is now carting water to the village to ensure the community’s access to high-quality water is not interrupted.

Water usage is being monitored, and water restrictions may be introduced if it becomes necessary. As per Council’s ordinary procedure, the community will receive one week’s notice if restrictions are to be introduced.

If water turbidity levels return to normal pumping from the bores will resume and water restrictions will not be required.

Council is carting enough water for residents to undertake normal indoor water use: drinking, cleaning, washing, and bathing.

Residents with questions or concerns should contact Council's Water and Wastewater Department on 1300 345 345 or council@snowymonaro.nsw.gov.au
