Water restrictions may soon be on the horizon as the region has received lower than average rainfall.
Director of Shoalhaven Water, Carmel Krogh, stressed the need to be water conscious.
"If we don't get further rain soon we will go onto level one water restrictions," Ms Krogh said.
"We need to be more conscious about water use."
The council stopped pumping water from the Shoalhaven River after the water source dropped below 90 mega litres a month ago.
The river is currently at 80 mega litres.
Ms Krogh offered the following advice to residents:
- Don't over water the garden.
- Make sure to use hoses with a trigger.
- Don't leave sprinklers unattended or without a timer.
- Don't hose down your driveway.
- Be careful with your outside water use.
Currently the area's main water source, Bamarang Dam, is at 91.4 per cent.
Danjera Dam is at 84.2 per cent and Porters creek is 77.3 per cent full.
Ms Krogh stressed that people need to use common sense when it comes to water use.
"We all need to think about what we do," she said.
"We can all be water wise."
