In accordance with Part 6, Section 137 of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005, Hilltops Council have implemented Level 1 water restrictions in Boorowa.
These restrictions are necessary to manage continuity of water supply due to low rainfall in the catchment area and a dry outlook with the majority of NSW in drought.
“These restrictions are aimed at maintaining water supply coming into summer faced with an extremely dry outlook and are necessary for ensuring ongoing water requirements are met,” Hilltops General Manager Edwina Marks said.
Residents are still able to water their lawns and gardens between 6am and 9am or 6pm and 9pm.
Further information, as well as tips for saving water are available on Council’s website.
