Areas of Lithgow’s water supply are currently experiencing discoloured water.
Residents are advised that water testing across the network 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 urgently investigating the cause of the problem and working to minimise the impact to residents.
