Billimari Water Supply Unsafe to Drink: The Billimari supply is a non-treated groundwater supply scheme which provides water for livestock and can be used for non-consumption domestic use by the residents of Billimari. Cowra Council have recently detected elevated levels of uranium in the existing groundwater supply and wish to remind residents that the groundwater is non-potable and should not be used for human consumption. Consumers are advised to not drink the water, or prepare food, freeze it for ice, clean their teeth or gargle with the water. The water can continue to be used for other household and external uses. Boiling the water or filtering it will not make it safe to drink.
Tuckerbox Auctions: Will be in Canowindra this weekend for a military antique and collectables auction on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th February at Canowindra Services Club.
LLS Rates Waived: Local land Services will again waive rates for 2020 including general rates and rates for animal health and pests, the meat industry levy and costs for routine stock moving permit and stock identification. You do not need to apply for this exemption as it will be automatically applied to landholders. The NSW Government will compensate Local Land Services for the lost rates revenue, meaning LLS staff can continue to support farmers during these challenging dry times.
