Rain Eases Pressure on Lower Hunter's Dams

The NSW Government today announced water restrictions in the Lower Hunter would return to Level 1, after recent rain provided a welcome boost to the region’s dams.


Minister for Water, Property and Housing Melinda Pavey said Level 1 water restrictions would apply from next Monday 24 February.

“It has been a welcome relief to receive some much-needed rainfall, after months of experiencing severe drought conditions in the Lower Hunter,” Mrs Pavey said.
