Water usage

How much water does Armidale use, on average, each day in mid-summer?

The answer, according to our Mayor, is about 14 ML (megalitres or million litres) per day (NB an olympic sized pool holds about 2.5 ML). And in this dry summer of 2019, our city’s consumption rose to 18 ML per day. In March 2019, Malpas dam fell below 60% capacity leading to level 1 restrictions being implemented.
