‘Best medicine ever’: Dam fills in drought-ravaged town

It wasn’t quite Niagara Falls, but tumbling water has rarely looked so good as it did today in the drought-ravaged New South Wales town of Tenterfield.

The town has endured bushfires, dry dams and drought, but now locals have a reason to celebrate.

“Listening to the water over the spillway is better than the best song I’ve ever heard,” resident Terry Dodds said.

Mayor – and local farmer – Peter Petty agreed.

“It’s the best medicine ever and it’s the biggest relief ever,” he said.

“We’ve been praying for this for a long time and we are on the front foot now, so not the back foot.”

The run-off from the rain continues to flow into the dam, putting the brown, cracked edges underwater.
