NSW residents given all clear to return home, however warned: Do not drink the water

Residents downstream of Jerrara Dam have been given the all clear to return to their properties after being evacuated overnight.

The level of the Dam has dropped below the Amber Alert level, meaning that there is no longer a threat for residents downstream of the dam.

Residents have been told to take precautions and to not drink from garden hoses, taps or water supply sources that may have been exposed to floodwater as it may be contaminated.


Local roads may remain closed due to inundation and driving conditions may be dangerous.
