Water restrictions are being introduced in the township of Taralga from today.


The Upper Lachlan council is reporting that there has been an escalated decrease in the town's water supply and as such Level 2 water restrictions have been imposed.


As of yesterday, Taralga's dam level was at approximately 60 per cent capacity.


Shire council acting general manager, Andrew Croke says restrictions will be closely monitored and reassessed each week.


As of today in Taralga, sprinkler and fixed hose usage is banned, there is no filling or topping up of private swimming pools and no washing of cars by hose is permitted.


As well, the watering of stock from the town water supply is not allowed.


The level 2 restrictions mean that water use by micro-sprays is permitted for 15 minutes and one hand-held hose can be used for one hour a day.


This can be from 7 to 8 in the morning or from 6.30 to 7.30 in the evening.
