Water Snapshot

Shoalhaven Water monitors your water supply. See below for rainfall figures and water consumption which are updated on a weekly basis.

There are currently no Water Restrictions in place across the Shoalhaven, although dry weather will have an impact on river flows. When river flows drop below 90ML Shoalhaven Water must cease pumping water from the river and rely solely on our storage supply. 

Level One Water Restrictions are brought into place when our supply at Bamarang reduces to 60% capacity. When this occurs, we release water into the Shoalhaven River from our backup supply at Danjera. The water released from Danjera can take up to 3 days to reach our pumping station at Burrier, and we use this water to top up the supply at Bamarang.

Porters Creek Dam is located in the Milton Ulladulla region and depending on the storage level, this dam will supply water to the southern area of the Shoalhaven. 

Customers are encouraged to monitor these pages for regular updates on water storage and river flows. Details are provided on this website and through the media when water restrictions are in place. For more information on Water Restrictions follow the Related Link to the right.
