Chaffey Dam has hit its highest point since Christmas but water restrictions won't be loosened any time soon.
Chaffey has risen by about one per cent since Monday to sit at 14.3 per cent on Friday - which equates to 16,730 megalitres.
However, for water restrictions to be eased Chaffey would have to push past the trigger point of 25 per cent.
On Friday, Tamworth Regional Council sustainability coordinator Tracey Carr reiterated director of water Bruce Logan's comments from earlier this week.
"It is encouraging seeing the increase in the dam and rivers across the region flowing but the disappointing side is the impact for Tamworth is minimal," she said.
"I think there has been exactly a one per cent increase. It's not a small amount of water but it doesn't change where we are with the water restrictions."
The dam sits closer to the lower trigger point of 10 per cent which, if hit, would see more water saving measures put in place.
"The target for residents will be 100 litres per person, per day and council will be working businesses and industry on ways to conserve water," Ms Carr said.
Over the past seven days, Tamworth, Kootingal and Moonbi has used 16.2 megalitres a day on average - just over the target of 16.1 megalitres a day.
Ms Carr put that down to some warmer days and said residents were implementing water-saving measures.
"People are really trying their best, both the business and residential community," she said.
"Everyone is doing as much as they can."
Chaffey isn't the only dam to rise.
Keepit Dam continues to surge toward 10 per cent, currently sitting at 9.5 per cent.
Keepit has risen from just under six per cent in the past five days while Split Rock Dam sits at 3.7 per cent - up from 2.6 per cent on Monday.
