New projections show that under a worst-case scenario, some NSW rural towns could run out of drinking water as soon as November.

Parts of regional NSW could run out of water as early as November as the state faces a drought of "unprecedented proportions".

Projections from the state's river operator and bulk water supplier WaterNSW have revealed the worst-case scenario for NSW if there's no significant rainfall or government intervention.

Under the worst-case scenario, the first towns to lose water supply will be Dubbo, Cobar, Nyngan and Narromine in November when the Macquarie River is forecast to run dry.
