Letter | I've got a water question as the dam continues dropping

WITH regard to the water restrictions being applied to Oberon residents, council kindly gave me water usage through the Oberon water treatment plant (roughly 2ml per day) and Oberon Dam capacity (45,000ml).

Ignoring evaporation and other usage, this gives us some 22,000 days' usage or 60 years from a full dam.

We are now down to 40 per cent capacity, which is 36 years of our usage, and since the dam was full two years ago, it suggests our usage is five per cent of the other usage.

Can I ask what is the other usage and is this entity on restrictions as are we?
