Eurobodalla water restrictions lifted

Eurobodalla Council has lifted water restrictions in the shire from Tuesday 29 January.

Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes thanked residents and visitors for assistance in securing the shire’s water supply through the summer months.

“The community has been fantastic since restrictions were introduced in October. Combined with average rainfall since November, water storage at Deep Creek Dam is back over 90 per cent,” she said.

“We expect demand for water to fall now school holidays have ended, however, the next few months are likely to be drier than average, so we are asking residents to remain mindful of using water wisely and observe Council’s permanent water-conservation measures.”

Although lifting of water restrictions is good news for the Eurobodalla, Clr Innes wants residents to spare a thought for the many communities in areas of NSW that continue to be severely impacted by drought.

“I’m calling on the NSW and Australian Governments to help these communities during this difficult time; they need to get out and meet people affected and see the challenges firsthand,” Clr Innes said.

Permanent water-conservation measures for the Eurobodalla include:

  • water gardens and lawns before 10am or after 5pm

  • no hosing of hard surfaces, except to clean away dangerous spills or remove algae or moss to prevent slips and falls - use a trigger-nozzle hose

  • wash private vehicles, including boats and flushing motors, on grass areas. Where possible, use buckets with a final rinse by trigger-nozzle hose

  • cover swimming pools and external spas when not in use.

Detailed information on the shire’s permanent water conservation measures can be found on Council’s website at or contact Council on 4474 1000.

Above: Eurobodalla’s water restrictions will be lifted from Tuesday 29 January as the water level in Deep Creek Dam is back over 90 per cent. Permanent water conservation measures remain in place.
