Council advises that the water supply in the Rabaul Street Lithgow area may be affected due to a water mains break. Residents may experience a reduction in water pressure or no water for a period until the mains are repaired.

Council cannot advise a time for the completion of repairs but will aim to minimise the period of disruption. Council staff are working to repair the break as soon as possible.

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.
