Water restrictions across the Snowy Monaro will be eased following much needed recent rainfall.
After a number of months on Level 3 restrictions, the Nimmitabel community is set to move to a Conserve Water Notice. The same notice will apply for the Bombala, Bredbo, Cooma and Delegate water supplies.
These water restriction reductions will come into effect from 12.00pm Wednesday 29 July and will be in place until further notice.
Recent rainfall throughout the Snowy Monaro region has provided welcomed relief after a long, dry summer and a relatively dry winter to date.
“Thank you to the community for helping conserve water and for complying with the restrictions,” Snowy Monaro Regional Council Mayor Peter Beer said.
“These efforts, along with the recent rain, will allow us to move all towns that were on water restrictions back to a Conserve Water Notice.”
Conserve Water Notices, link below, are reminders of the good practices that will keep water storages as high possible for next summer. These notices are not enforceable.
