Level 4 water restrictions in place for the Brogo-Bermagui water supply system were completely lifted on Tuesday.
The introduction of the Level 4 restrictions was part of suite of emergency measures implemented that also included carting water from Bega, as well as the army's 2 Combat Engineer Regiment setting up its water purification and desalination system next to Brogo Tank One to help supplement the drinking water supplies.
A Bega Valley Shire Council spokesperson said these measures had become necessary on the back of the Brogo River/Brogo Dam catchment being largely burnt by the Badja Forest and Werri Berri Fires.
Also, heavy rainfall in more recent times had badly compromised water available to feed the supply to Quaama, Cobargo, Bermagui, Beauty Point, Fairhaven, Wallaga Lake, Wallaga Lake Heights, Akolele and the Wallaga Lake Koori Village.
Council's water and sewer manager, Chris Best, said the quality of water in the Brogo Dam and downstream in the river had improved immensely and had reached a very acceptable level.
"Although this is still not our normal operating situation the need for water restrictions is no longer there right now - and no boil water notice is required either," Mr Best said.
"The water fill stations at Quaama and Bermagui are also be available again for use.
"No doubt this will be welcome news for our customers in the north of the shire who have been saving water, however the situation remains dynamic and any heavy rainfall in the catchment could again cause us problems."
