Discoloured Water Alert

Areas across Lithgow’s water supply network are currently experiencing discoloured water as a result of an earlier burst trunk main.

Residents are advised that water testing has found that, whilst the water is discoloured, it is still well within the limits set out by the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines and is therefore safe for drinking and bathing.

Residents are urged to check their water supply prior to doing any washing until further notice, as the water discolouration may stain clothing.

Council is working to minimise the impact to residents.
