Several complex issues affecting the Coonamble town water supply have arisen that impact Council’s ability to deliver enough safe drinking water to meet the current demand.
To reduce this demand so that Council only delivers water to Coonamble households that does meet drinking water guidelines, Level 1 water restrictions have been introduced.
Council greatly appreciates the cooperation and support of the Coonamble community during this time, assuring householders that restrictions will be lifted as soon as possible.
In the meantime, Council has sought the help of senior officers from the Department of Planning and Environment and the Department of Health to work through the various issues.
Individual householders or businesses who consider they have special circumstances that prevent their abiding by these restrictions are asked to complete a request to be exempted. In your request, please give specific details and reasons why your situation should be excused from the water restrictions. Requests can be made online through Council’s website here.
These restrictions do not apply to the Gulargambone or Quambone water supplies.
Level 1 water restrictions currently apply, meaning:
More specifically for gardens and lawns:
For vehicles, buildings and boats:
For new and existing private swimming pools and external spas:
Council will review the restrictions daily, in line with the performance of it water treatment plant and thanks residents for their patience and cooperation during this time.
