Current Water Restrictions


Due to continued dry conditions, the volume of the Kentucky Creek Dam has dropped below 62%.  Uralla will commence Level 2 water restrictions on Sunday 10 March 2019.  The implications of Level 2 water restrictions for residents are that:

  • General watering of lawns and gardens is permitted for a maximum of 2 hours and not during the heat of the day. Hand held hoses with trigger nozzles, water efficient drip irrigation, or sprinklers can be used before 9 am and after 5 pm.
  • Buckets and hand held hoses with trigger nozzles can be used for car washing.
  • Council will reduce watering at Council managed facilities, parks and gardens.

Please contact Council on 6778 6300 should you have any questions or concerns.



There are no water restrictions currently in place in Bundarra.

Water Restriction Levels

Level 2 Water Restrictions are triggered when water levels of the Kentucky Creek Dam or Taylors Pond fall below 62%.
