There's been a lot of mud slung between the region's councils about their differing stances when it comes to implementing water restrictions.
This week Orange mayor Reg Kidd proved he isn't shy about sharing his opinions on what needs to be done to conserve water.
In fact he even went so far as to label Dubbo's relaxed water restrictions "disgraceful".
This week Dubbo Regional Council maintained its level four restrictions, but increased the daily water usage per person from 245 litres to 280 litres and allowed people to water their lawns in the wake of weekend rain.
Last week Lithgow City Council defended its decision to have no water restrictions, criticising its neighbours for not taking enough water precautions before the drought hit.
Of course Dubbo and Lithgow councils are entitled to do and say what they want but when it comes to water conservation I'd prefer to see a mayor, and council, that's prepared to make the hard calls.
