Slight changes have been made to Dubbo Regional Council's water restrictions following feedback from the public.
The Drought Contingency and Water Emergency Response Plan recently went on public exhibition.
There were 13 submissions made, the majority of which mentioned water restrictions.
The Dubbo local government area went back to level three water restrictions in March.
Under the restrictions, residents are able to water for an hour on Wednesdays and Sundays. Watering is permitted before 9am or after 6pm as to avoid the 'heat of the day'.
But the watering times were reviewed on Monday night at the council committee meetings as part of the discussion on the DCWERP.
ALSO MAKING NEWS:
Multiple submissions were made to council saying it was too cold and dark to water before 9am and after 6pm in winter.
Based on the responses, council has decided to allow watering for an hour on Sundays and Wednesdays at any time of the day outside of daylight saving periods.
The change will come into effect on July 27.
The aim of the DCWERP is to ensure Dubbo Regional Council residents have enough water to meet their needs, including during times of drought.
