Late last week, the Braidwood Services Club received advice from the NSW Office of Water that in accordance with their water licence conditions, “that during times of low flow in Gillamatong Creek, the Club must ‘cease to pump’ for the purposes of irrigating the golf course in order to maintain a minimum base flow that provides downstream users continuing access to water that is essential for domestic and stock purposes.”
