WaterNSW will host a customer information session regarding dam and river operations in the Macquarie-Cudgegong valley as Burrendong Dam falls below 13%.

Senior WaterNSW system operations personnel will be on hand to meet with water users reliant on the Macquarie and Cudgegong Rivers.

Inflows into Burrendong have been at record low levels since last available water determination in August 2017 – less than a third of the previous historical lowest total recorded.

Burrendong Dam had been drawn below 10% on five previous occasions (June 1995, January 1998, April 2003, May 2004 and January 2007).

In Mudgee, the session will be at Club Mudgee this Thursday, 17 January, between 10am and 12 midday.
