THE Tweed received another 100mm of glorious rain between Friday night and Sunday, according to Tweed Heads gauge watcher Wal Smith.
The recent downfalls have now made water restrictions by the end of the year unlikely, according to the council's acting manager Water and Wastewater, Peter Pennycuick.
Over the past fortnight, the natural flows in the catchment have been restored, enabling council to stop the release of water from Clarrie Hall Dam, he said.
And the high rainfall received in the catchment recently is forecast to continue this week.
"This continued rainfall will make the introduction of any water restrictions, which we had originally expected could be in place by the end of the year, unlikely," Mr Pennycuick said.
Water restrictions are guided by the level of Clarrie Hall Dam.
Following the recent rain, Clarrie Hall Dam is at 100% capacity.
The council had previously said the region was on track for water restrictions by Christmas due to dry weather in the first half of the year resulting in low river flows affecting the water supply.
