Chilla­goe res­i­dents are be­ing urged to re­duce their wa­ter us­age as the town’s wa­ter ca­pac­ity is at a crit­i­cal level. Coun­cil has im­posed Level 3 wa­ter re­stric­tions for res­i­dents con­nected to the town’s wa­ter sup­ply in Chilla­goe, ef­fec­tive from Wed­nes­day. Al­though the Chilla­goe Town­ship is fed from three bores, the wa­ter sup­ply is reach­ing a crit­i­cally low level. Mayor Tom Gil­more said un­for­tu­nately one of the bores failed last week due to a lack of wa­ter and an­other pump is currently be­ing as­sessed and will un­dergo emer­gency re­pairs should it be deemed nec­es­sary. “The town can­not sur­vive with one bore which is al­ready strug­gling to pro­duce its max­i­mum yield,” Cr Gil­more said. Th­ese re­stric­tions will re­main un­til futher no­tice.
