Extreme water restrictions apply from Monday, 14 October 2019
Bathurst Regional Council has implemented a range of drought management actions in accordance with its Drought Management Plan, water restrictions are part of this plan and relate solely to Bathust water supply.
Alternative water supplies do exist, including bores, wells, independent rain water tanks (those not filled/topped up from Bathurst water supply) and water sourced from supplies outside the region.
If an alternative water supply is being utilised, appropriate signage must be in place at the front of the property to alert compliance officers. Contact the Water Restrictions Hotline: (02) 6333 1683 to have your independent water source assessed and approved by Council, at which time you will receive a Council-branded sign for display, acknowledging 'independent water supply in use'.
In rare circumstances raw water may also be available - please contact Council's Water Section for further information.

Bathurst Bulk Filtered Drinking Water Filling Stations
Council provides a bulk filtered water supply via filling stations at Hereford Street. These filling stations provide filtered water from Bathurst’s town water supply, and therefore ARE NOT an alternative water source to the Bathurst water supply. Water from these filling stations must be used in accordance with current water restrictions. Anyone wishing to access bulk filtered water from these filling stations must obtain a Permit to Access Bulk Water.
