Boorowa Water Restrictions Lifted

Recent heavy falls of rain in the area has eased the water situation for the Boorowa community.

As a result of the much welcomed rainfall, Hilltops Council has been able to completely lift restrictions with the Boorowa Weir now overflowing.

“It is relieving to be off restrictions, however the security of the Boorowa water supply is still a long term issue.” said Council’s Interim General Manager, Anthony McMahon.

Council realises the burden of extended periods of high water restrictions on the community, however careful water vigilance is encouraged with regards to water conservation all year round.

“Although we have been able to remove the restrictions for now, Council would like to reiterate that the Boorowa community will need to remain proactive and use water sparingly to ensure sufficient water supplies in the event of a dry winter an as we head towards summer” said Mr McMahon.

Hilltops Council will continue to work with state and federal agencies to ensure funding is made available to assist in improving the water security of Boorowa now and into the future.
