Tenterfield Dam is now at 70% capacity. Council has now enacted the Drought Management plan and issued the town of Tenterfield level one water restrictions.

Level one water restrictions are the lowest of the water restriction levels and are designed to provide some community awareness into water saving techniques. By raising community awareness we can all help to reduce water consumption and save our precious water supply.

The Level 1 restrictions reduce water usage through restricting the use of garden watering to two hours a day and residents are asked to abide by these restrictions.
