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

Council is undertaking emergency repairs on the reticulation network from 8:30PM, 16 September with traffic control in place around the Intersection of Main Street and Lithgow Street. Residents in this area of Lithgow may experience a reduction in water pressure or no water. Motorists are advised to avoid the area where possible.

Council cannot advise a time for the completion of repairs but will aim to minimise the period of disruption.

Upon return to normal service, residents may experience dirty water for a period. Council will endeavor 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.
