The drought is impacting NSW farmers but also it's impacting the supply of drinking water.
Reports from Power FM's sister station 'Wave FM' has said, the Illawarra's main feeder dam - The AVON - is down to 64-percent capacity, compared to almost 79-percent at the beginning of the year, CORDEAUX less than 42-percent ( 69.4% in Jan ) and CATARACT 38-percent ( 69% in Jan ).
The Water level at Brogo Dam on the South Coast is also falling. Though compared to the Illawarra the capacity is higher. It's currently sitting at 85% capacity.
Will water restrictions in NSW be put in place soon?
