MANILLA WATER RESTRICTIONS TIGHTEN, WHILE COUNCIL IS ‘WORRIED’ ABOUT NUNDLE AND BENDEMEER

Tamworth, Moonbi and Kootingal may be out of the woods with water restrictions, but the news isn’t as good for those at Manilla – who will see conditions further tightened next week.

“They did have a run in the Namoi River for the last month or so, but that has gone. So we are reintroducing level two restrictions for Manilla as of Monday of next week,” Bruce Logan, Tamworth Regional Council.

Under level two restrictions, hand held hoses and dripper systems can only be used for two hours a day between 5 and 7pm.

Meanwhile, water restrictions at nearby towns continue to be monitored.

“Nundle stays at level three and there’s no change to anyone else although we are a little worried about Nundle and we are worried about Bendemeer as well.”
