In accordance with Part 6, Section 137 of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005, Hilltops Council have implemented Level 1 water restrictions in Boorowa.  These restrictions are necessary to manage continuity of water supply due to low rainfall in the catchment area and a dry outlook with the majority of NSW in drought.

What does the colour of your water mean for you?

With the summer months approaching, the temperature will increase and accordingly, the demand on our water supply will rise.
