The Bureau of Meteorology’s Water Restrictions website provides access to current water restrictions information for the whole of Australia. Water restrictions information can be searched by State or Territory, water agency and restriction name. Water restriction names and rules vary throughout Australia due to local requirements.
Water from the Brogo River is drawn through an infiltration gallery, and then pumped to Brogo balance tank 1 (BBT1). The water is disinfected with chlorine as it flows into BBT1. From BBT1 water flows by gravity to Quaama, Cobargo and Brogo balance tank 2 (BBT2). From BBT2 water flows to Bermagui and Wallaga Lake area.
Water from Couria Creek supplies areas north of Wallaga Lake and can flow by gravity to Bermagui if available and needed. It is also flows into (and out of) Tilba dam. Illawambra Creek can supply Cobargo by gravity, although the impact of the Wandella Water Sharing Plan and recent droughts has meant it is easier operationally and more reliable to supply Cobargo from the Brogo River source.
There are currently no water restrictions in place. For details on water restrictions and trigger levels in the Bega Valley Shire Council water supply area please visit http://www.begavalley.nsw.gov.au/Your_Council/Policies/procedures/2-4-1e.pdf.
