Level 3: Chillagoe
Council has imposed Level 3 water restrictions for residents connected to the town’s water supply in Chillagoe since 1 November 2017. These restrictions will remain in place until further notice.
Although the Chillagoe Township is fed from three bores, the water supply is reaching a critically low level following several years of low rainfall. Level 3 water restrictions have been imposed to ensure continuity of water supply to the residents of Chillagoe.
Council is undertaking investigations into new groundwater supply sources to improve water security for Chillagoe township over the long term. In the meantime, water restrictions remain in force and will be re-evaluated following the 2019/20 wet season.
