Water restrictions

The Regional Drought Management Plan has been put together to ensure continued water supply during drought conditions in order to meet water user, public health and firefighting needs.

Level 1 water restrictions will be introduced when the water level in Rocky Creek Dam falls below 60%. The Regional Drought Management Plan aims to provide a consistent restriction regime for all water supplies across the Rous County Council supply region incorporating Ballina, Byron, Lismore and Richmond Valley Local Government areas.  For more information about water restrictions please view the Regional Drought Management Plan or contact us by calling 02 6623 3800.
