The percentage increase may have been a small one, but the Ben Chifley Dam water level has gone up for a third consecutive week.
As of Tuesday, May 19, the dam sits at 34.6 per cent, an increase of just 0.2 from the previous week.
While the increase is a small one, there was no rain recorded in Bathurst from May 9 to 19 although a look at Oberon's daily weather observations - a town much closer to the dam - it reveals there has been very small drops of rain.
Since May 9, there's been eight days of recorded rainfall in Oberon, however, the highest total was 0.6mm on May 16.
Bathurst did receive some rain on Wednesday, however, only 1mm was recorded at the city's airport by midday.
There still remains a 70 per cent chance of anywhere between 1-5mm of rain for Bathurst on Thursday, with a 60 per cent chance of the same figure on Saturday.
