Water restrictions in Braidwood and Bungendore: Water restrictions will be in place in Bungendore and Braidwood from Friday, November 22. Braidwood will be placed on Stage 2 water restrictions, which encourages residents to reduce water consumption by 25 per cent. Bungendore will start on Stage 1 water restrictions which call for a 10 pr cent reduction. This is the first time since 2010 that Braidwood and Bungendore have been placed on water restrictions and comes after a long period of below average rainfall. Water restrictions are not required in Captains Flat, with storage currently at 100 per cent, while the Queanbeyan urban area, including Googong, follows the advice of Icon Water which is not currently considering water restrictions. While restrictions are not in place in these two areas, residents are encouraged to be mindful of their water usage and follow the permanent water conservation measures. For more information, go to
