Members of the community have shared their tips on saving water to help others cut back on usage.
Dubbo and Wellington will go to level four water restrictions on November 1.
To help use less, Australian Community Media readers have shared their ideas.
Kym Tomlinson joked the best way for people to save water was to shower together.
"But seriously, just do things like check all taps make sure they aren't dripping, replace washers if needed. Don't brush your teeth in the shower because it will make your shower longer, instead wet toothbrush, turn tap off brush teeth. In the shower wet yourself, shampoo hair and soap body up, rinse all off on one blow," Ms Tomlinson said.
She also encouraged people to only turn on their dishwasher when "you can't possibly fit anything else in it".

Kaye Segelov encouraged people to restrict their showers.
"Shower every 36 hours instead of every 24 hours and wash hair less frequently (don't know about you, but my showers are always longer when I wash my hair)," she said.
Ms Whitfield also recommended keeping pets' water dishes out of the sun to help reduce evaporation.
Jennie Bancroft has also cut back on her shower usage.
"As we are retired and any day we stay home we don't shower, I bought some baby wipes to use when the weather gets hotter. When we shower we soap up, rinse off then turn shower off," she said.
Emily Joy Beahan said she had put her washing machine hose into a watering can or buckets so it could be used on the garden.
For Krista Morrissey, bottled water has another use.
"If my kids have leftover water in their water bottles after school they have been watering the veggies and pot plants," she said.
Jenny Clarke has been using the water collected in the shower in the loo cistern. For Megan Siemsen, she uses a large tub to bath her child and then uses that water to flush the toilet.

Jennie Bancroft has a clever trick for keeping windows clean.
"When I fill up at the service station I use their bucket and sponge to clean the windows," she said.
