URALLA Shire Council has completely lifted Bundarra's Level 5 water restrictions, after a deluge replenished the town's water supply.
Acting general manager David Aber said the recent storms that hit the region late last week, particularly the one near Guyra, sent a torrent down the Gwydir River, restocking Taylors Pond.
"I am pleased that much needed rainfall has filled Taylors Pond to capacity," Mr Aber said.
"For that reason, water restrictions can be lifted completely. Once it's full, there's no reason to have restrictions."
Although the reservoir is at capacity, residents are still being urged to remain mindful of their water consumption.
"The rain has provided a temporary relief, however we are still in drought conditions with water shortages across our region," Mr Aber said.
Depending on ongoing flows of the Gwydir River, council will reconsider the future triggers for Bundarra's water restrictions "with the view to maximise supply capacity".
The boil water already is still in place due to "elevated turbidity levels" of the treated water still applies.
However, Mr Aber believes council should have the issues solved soon by switching to a different pond.
