Condobolin Water Supply to be interrupted in Condobolin on the 1st May.

There will be a complete loss of water supply to 30 Streets in Condobolin on 1 May.

The interruption will happen between 8am and 7pm, as Lachlan Shire Council (LSC) undertakes planned valve replacement works in Denison and Orange Streets.

“The interruption is to allow Council to undertake critical maintenance works prior to upgrading water mains in Denison Street,” LSC Director of Infrastructure Services Phil King said.

“Residents in the affected areas are requested to open an outside tap (preferably the closest tap to your meter) once loss of supply has commenced.

“This will assist with pressure and discolouration. Council advises that taps be left open for three minutes following water supply being reinstated.”

“You can direct this water through a sprinkler, so that it doesn’t go to waste” Mr King said.

The streets that will be affected are: Madline Street (far eastern end); Maitland Street (east of Leifermann St); Jones Lane; Browns Lane; Worthingtons Lane; Willis Lane; Burnett Street; May Street; Parkes Road; Station Street; Rogers Street; Kurrajong Street; Honan Street; Mooney Street; Goobang Street; Gordon Street; Denison Street; North Forbes Road; Willow Bend Village; Willow Bend Road; Oxley Street; Marsden Street; Evans Street; Bathurst Street (east of William St); Lachlan Street (east of William St); Orange Street (east of Melrose St); Molong Street (east of Melrose St); William Street (Molong St to Bathurst St); Napier Street (south of Molong St); and McDonnell Street (south of Molong St).

Residents in all other streets of Condobolin may experience reduced pressure and water discolouration, although it is not expected that complete loss of water supply will occur in other streets.

“All consumers are advised they may experience some further discoloration of the supply in the 24 to 48 hours following the works,” Mr King said.

“Residents in the affected areas are requested to ensure they have ample water in reserve to cover their requirements during the interruption to service.”

A letter and a map, outlining all of the affected streets, will also be sent to residents, Mr King said.

Residents who have a special water need, should contact LSC immediately for service arrangements to be made.
