Both towns have a combined population of around 3000 people so not a huge demand on supply so hopefully it will last. We have a dedicated pipeline for our supply(as well as emergency bores) but the town downstream pumps their water from the river & only a 1/3rd of that makes it to the holding weir so a lot of lost water along the way.

I don`t trust this council, Tamworth is currently on Level 5 restrictions with 18,000 megalitres to supply 50,000 people but the are still going ahead with the Country Music Festival which brings in another 50,000 people for 10 days. Guess they can`t go without the $$$$$ it brings in.

On level 3 restrictions we can only use water outdoors(no sprinklers) for 15 minutes per day between 6pm & 8pm(or as many buckets as you can carry in 2 hours). Previously we could use a sprinkler or hose between 6pm & 8am.

Previous to the pipeline being constructed in 2014 we always had a severe lack of water so most of the towns folk are pretty conservative concerning the use of water.
