There are currently Level 5 restrictions in place for Guyra.
Where a residential property is using more than 800 Litres per day without justification (eg. medical reason, number of residents) Council may apply a flow restrictor or issue a letter asking for explanation of consumption.
Residences and businesses must attend to leaks as soon as they are discovered or reported or be subject to a $220 penalty.

Water level triggers
Council is currently harmonising the existing drought management plans for Guyra and Armidale into one plan that reflects current water yield studies of the catchment. At the moment we are working with two plans of which we have published the Guyra trigger points on the website purely as a guide only. Important decisions have been made to activate these trigger points earlier.
