As part of Council’s water metering and reservoir upgrade projects, Council will be undertaking flowmeter installations at Oakey Park Water Treatment Plant and Wallerawang Reservoir on the 11th and 13th of November 2020.

Council has engaged a local contractor to undertake the installation of new flowmeters at the Oakey Park Water Treatment Plant on Bells Road on the 11th of November and Wallerawang Reservoir on the 13th of November 2020. This will be undertaken as a part of Council’s rollout of smart metering to better capture the water requirements and usage throughout the network. The metering project will allow Council to capture the usage from each service reservoir and better account for usage and losses in the systems across the LGA.

The treatment plant provides potable water to residents across the Lithgow township but will not effect the service to the residents as the reservoirs will still be operating during this time. Wallerawang Reservoir services the Wallerawang township. It is advised that residents in Wallerawang may experience a reduction in water pressure or no water whilst works are being undertaken however the works should only take approximately 3 to 4 hours. After completion of the installation, Council will flush water mains to reduce dirty water and return service as soon as practicable.

Residents are advised before using water for domestic purposes 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.

Residents are encouraged to register for MiWater at lithgow.miwater.co to receive notifications via email or text.
