Water restrictions in Condobolin have been relaxed.
As of Wednesday, 3 March the water restrictions in the town will return to Level One.
The current water restrictions in effect across the shire are as follows Condobolin – Level 1 (from 03/03/2021); Lake Cargelligo – Level 1 (includes Gibsonvale-Kikoira Pipeline and Murrin Bridge); Tullibigeal – Level 1; Tottenham – Level 2; Albert – Level 2; Fifield – Level 2; and Burcher – Level 2.
Lachlan Shire Council is asking Condobolin residents to review their daily water usage and watering habits with a concerted effort to water conservation in accordance with the existing Level 1 Water Restrictions.
Under Level 1 water restrictions, watering of gardens for residential and non-residential properties is permitted daily.
During daylight savings time, watering times are between 6pm in the evening to 9am in the morning. Under Level 2 water restrictions, watering of gardens for residential and non-residential properties is permitted every second day under the odds and evens system.
During daylight savings time, watering times are in the mornings at 6am – 9am and in the evenings at 6pm – 9pm.
There are a number of easy water saving measures that can be implemented, such as taking shorter showers, leaving the tap turned off while brushing teeth and installing tap timers in the garden.
