Orange might be on Level 5 water restrictions with dams only 27 per cent full but our water has helped Molong's dam fill up.
Molong residents will drop down to Level One restrictions from Thursday July 9.
Only two weeks ago the town shifted from Level 5 to Level 4.

However inflows to Molong's dam along a pipeline from Orange and water overflowing down the spillway at Lake Canobolas (pictured) have lifted the Molong Creek Dam level to 94 per cent.
And it's likely to be full by the end of the week.
At the height of the drought the dam level dropped to only 10.5 per cent.
Cabonne Council mayor, Cr Kevin Beatty said there had been massive inflows into the Molong Creek Dam.
"Lake Canobolas being at low capacity impacted Cabonne's ability to capture water, but now that it is overflowing we are seeing a dramatic increase in the Molong Creek Dam capacity," he said.
Cr Beatty said the completion of the Orange-Molong pipeline had also boosted the town's water supplies.
"Our aim is to build water security for the future," he said.
Cr Beatty said the Molong Bore Project was expected to start in a few weeks.
"I congratulate the Molong community for continuing to remain vigilant throughout the summer months and know that the ongoing Molong Bore Project will offer an increased level of water security in coming years," he said.
While Molong will go to Level One Cumnock and Yeoval stay on Level 2.
Under Level One restrictions residents can water their lawns and gardens every day between 6am-10am and 4pm-10pm.
