Water Usage Targets

Council's Drought Management Action Plan sets out the actions to be taken in its drought response, including targets for water usage. There are five drought response levels; from Level 1 (Low) to Level 5 (Emergency), with each level having a set of suggested actions to be undertaken during that phase of the drought, including an associated set of water conservation measures/restrictions, primary triggers for initiating the drought response level, and total system water consumption targets for those levels.

The tables below set out the drought management plans for Uralla and Bundarra.
