Please restrict use of fixed hoses and sprinklers to evenings only!

Restrictions on the use of fixed hoses and sprinklers between 7pm and 7am remain in place for Coonamble.

Council is required to impose restrictions on fixed hoses and sprinklers to ensure sufficient treated water remains in water towers for more essential household use during periods of high demand.

The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting periods of hot weather throughout the summer. Council is mindful of the need to continue meeting residents’ water demands without overextending the capacity of bores that feed the water treatment plant.

Council officers continue to monitor the situation and to investigate and impose fines in instances of obvious excessive water use.

Under the Local Government Act 1993 the maximum penalty that Council can apply for a breach of imposed water restrictions is $2,200 for corporations and $220 for individuals.

Council thanks all residents for their understanding and co-operation while these arrangements are in place.
