Change to Bulk Water Transfer

Water NSW has revised the schedule of the Bulk Water transfer from Windamere Dam to Burrendong.

The rain a week ago has produced a small additional inflow of about 10,000 ML into Burrendong Dam.

Combined with the amount delivered since January 1st through the Bulk Water Transfer, this has resulted in Burrendong Dam being higher than previously forecast for this stage of the drought planning.

WaterNSW has taken this opportunity to assist water users and the landholders along the Cudgegong River by modifying the transfer pattern, to enable the movement of stock and machinery across the river.

WaterNSW will advise a revised schedule today for the remaining first stage of the BWT.
