Lithgow City Council has engaged the services of ADS Environmental Services to conduct smoke testing of properties in the Lithgow Government Area. Smoke testing is carried out to locate defects in the public sewage network and in house service lines. These defects can result in storm-water run off entering the sewer system, resulting in additional load to the system. The smoke testing will be undertaken from mid-April and continue through May 2018.
Ensuring the sewerage capacity of the region for sustainable growth and development has been identified as measure to enhance the natural environment in the 2013 – 2026 Community Strategic Plan.
