Level 5 water restrictions will come into effect in Molong from Monday, November 4.
Cabonne Mayor Kevin Beatty said with no end in sight to the crippling drought, there have been no significant flows into Molong Creek Dam which is now at its lowest level since 2001.
"Council appreciates the efforts Molong residents have made to save water and we seek the community's cooperation to continue to observe restrictions and make every drop count," he said.
Under Level 5 restrictions the water consumption target will be 160 litres per person per day.
The level 5 restrictions include a number of water change usages including:
- No sprinklers, micro-sprays or soaker hoses can be used;
- Buckets, watering cans, drip systems or a hand-held hose may be used on gardens for 30 minutes between 6pm-7pm each Sunday.
- No filling or topping up swimming pools or water features
- No washing cars at home.
Level 5 water restrictions were introduced to Orange on October 6.
Orange residents were also given a consumption target pf 160 litres per person per day.
