Lake Rowlands Spills: Following the rain event last week, Lake Rowlands the town water supply source for Central Tablelands Water (CTW) is now spilling. The rapid rate of which Lake Rowlands has filled is incredible. With the catchment now saturated and all the tributaries flowing, the Lake increased from 32.5% in late April to topping by the end of July. During July the dam increased by over 40%, with a 20% increase occurring over a 30 hour period. Water restrictions were eased on Monday 3rd August to level 1.
