Council advises that the water supply in the area of the Coalbrook Street, Lithgow may be affected due to a water mains break.

Council is undertaking asset replacement on the reticulation network that services Coalbrook Street, Lithgow. Residents in Coalbrook Street, Geordie Street, Davy Street, Stephenson Street and Wear Street may experience a reduction in water pressure or no water.

Council cannot advise a time for the completion of repairs, but will aim to minimise the period of disruption. The shutdown should be completed within business hours.

Upon return to normal service, residents may experience dirty water for a period. Council will endeavour to minimise this by flushing the mains. Before using the water for domestic purposes, residents are advised to run the first tap that services their property to ensure the water is clean and any dirt released into the system has been flushed before running internal taps.

If you continue to experience issues of dirty water, please contact Council.
