Lismore City Council is pleased to advise Nimbin residents that Level 3 Water Restrictions will be lifted today, Saturday, 24 December.
Council has improved the water quality at Mulgum Creek and Mulgum Creek Weir after ongoing high turbidity issues following the February natural disaster and on-going high rainfall.
Council has also gradually filled D.E. Williams Dam which is now at 80 per cent capacity, as well as desilting Mulgum Creek Weir, which has effectively increased the dam’s water holding capacity.
While residents and businesses can now use potable water, we urge the community to remain water conscious and conserve water were possible.
Please note that this notice does not affect the Boil Water Alert for customers on the Nimbin Rural Line.
Council is working with state agencies and other stakeholders in rectifying this issue and we expect to have a solution by March.
