January 2023: Boil Water Alert Clarence River/Coutts Crossing (NSW)
Due to a prolonged dirty water event in the Nymboida River, immediate Level 4 (Severe) Water Restrictions have been introduced in order to avoid the need to call a Boil Water Alert for the whole Clarence Valley water supply system.
The Boil Water Alert for Coutts Crossing issued on 30 January remains in place.
Level 4 restrictions ban all outside watering (except use of grey water).
See the tables attached for the current restrictions in place for specific water uses under Level 4 restrictions.
For more information on permitted uses please refer to the Water Restrictions Policy on Clarence Valley Council’s website.
Restrictions will be reviewed when the water quality in the Nymboida River improves. Council appreciates cooperation and understanding of residents in this matter.
