Water restrictions lifted in Tweed, thanks to heavy rain

Good news for Tweed residents this morning, with water restrictions officially lifted following decent rain.

Clarrie Hall Dam is now at 100 per cent, with local council reporting there are significant river flows at Bray Park Weir.

Manager Water and Wastewater Anthony Burnham says residents can go back to normal, though still encourages locals to do their part where possible.


“This last lot of rain has taken the dam level from 82.5 per cent on Wednesday 5 February to 100 per cent yesterday.

“The rain has caused a number of maintenance and safety issues in our public parks and these take priority over turning back on beach showers and taps, so please be patient as we work through this. It may take up to two weeks.

“No further business restriction permits will be issued and any business with a Level 2 Restriction permit has now expired,” Mr Burnham said.

The region received a whopping 200mm of rainfall in the catchment area in recent days.
