Interruption to Service – Flowmeter Installation at Wallerawang Reservoirs

Lithgow Council

As part of Lithgow Council’s water metering and reservoir upgrade projects, flowmeter are to be installed at Wallerawang on the night of 25 May 2021.

A local contractor will undertake the installation of new flowmeters at the Wallerawang reservoir on the night of 25 of May 2021. This will be undertaken as a part of Lithgow Council’s rollout of smart metering to better capture the water requirements and usage throughout the network. The metering project will allow usage from each service reservoir to be captured and better account for usage and losses in the systems across the city.

Residents may experience a reduction in water pressure or no water whilst works are being undertaken. After completion of the installation, water mains will be flushed to reduce dirty water and return service as soon as practicable.

Before using water for domestic purposes residents should 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 also encouraged to register for MiWater at to receive notifications via email or text.
