Bungendore water restrictions lifted

Water restriction in Braidwood and Bungendore

Council has today announced Level 1 water restrictions will be removed in Bungendore.

Bungendore’s water is sourced from underground and monitoring of water levels has shown significant recovery following the dry period.

Water restrictions became necessary in Bungendore during the summer months when ground water sources began to show a decline. However, following a review of bores and recent town water usage levels in mid-March, Council believes the situation has eased, and will continue to improve as we move into the colder months when daily water usage further reduces.

While water restrictions will be lifted from Friday 3 April, permanent water conservation measures remain in place across the entire Queanbeyan-Palerang local government area. These allow the use of sprinklers and other irrigation systems to water lawns and plants but restricts their use to between 6pm and 9am only. Hoses with trigger nozzles, buckets and high-pressure low-volume cleaners can be used when cleaning pavers, cars and homes.
