Boil Water Alert remains in place

Dubbo Regional Council wishes to advise that the Boil Water Alert in place in North Dubbo will remain over the weekend.

For the area served by the Myall Street Reservoir, which is North Dubbo, the Boil Water Notice will remain in place while reservoir cleaning and further sampling are undertaken.

Water should be boiled for at least one minute before consumption by humans or pets.

Do not swallow water when showering and do not use to prepare food that will not be cooked.

The water may still be used for watering the garden.

Although there have been improvements observed overall since testing began, Council will continue to work with NSW Health to ensure the system has returned to normal before the boil water alert is lifted.

If you are unsure if you are affected by the Boil Water Alert please contact Dubbo Regional Council Customer Services on (02) 6801 4000 before close of business. A map of the affected area is available at

Council apologises for any inconvenience.
