Dam levels

We monitor the capacity and use of our dams on a daily basis.

Water restrictions are imposed when water levels drop below certain points. Currently Coffs Harbour is under Permanent Water Conservation Measures. Go to our Water Restrictions page to find out more about the levels and what you need to do when they change.
