Council will re-open the Bonalbo pool for the Australia Day long weekend.
The pool was closed on Monday, 13 January when Level 4 water restrictions were introduced at Bonalbo.
It will re-open on Saturday and remain open throughout the long weekend.
Kyogle Council Mayor Cr Danielle Mulholland said Council would review the Level 4 water restrictions for Bonalbo next week.
“We are very pleased that we can open the pool for the community for the long weekend,” she said.
“Council was aware that the community really wanted to be able to use the pool this Australia Day weekend, so we made the call to allow this exemption.
“Peacock Creek is flowing again after the recent rain and Council is harvesting water to Petrocholis Dam.
“We continue to ask residents to look closely at their water consumption and cut back as much as possible — every drop of water counts.
“Council will review water storage levels at the dam again early next week and hopefully we will have further good news for the community.”
