Water Main Replacement project Coonabarabran

Works have now commenced on the water main replacement project in Coonabarabran, which is set to improve the quality of water delivered to connected customers.

“Council’s water reticulation team have been working hard to complete the water mains replacement project across Coonabarabran,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan. “With works in Dawson Street and Drummond Street now completed the water team will be working on replacing a section of mains in Robertson Street and King Street, Coonabarabran.”

These replacement works are part of the 2023/24 financial year capital works program where approximately 1km of cast iron water main in Coonabarabran will be replaced which aims to improve the quality of water delivered to connect customers.  

As works roll out across Coonabarabran residents who are connected to the water main where works are being completed, may experience minor water supply disruptions, and will be notified prior to works. 

This project is a part of Council’s commitment to supply safe and secure water to customers across the local government area (LGA). Council is committed to investing into the reticulation network to continuously upgrade the network for the community.

“Council’s water mains replacement program is targeted at replacing water mains that are exhibiting issues within the various reticulation networks across the LGA. These programs reduce leaks, improving the efficiency of Council’s water supply operations and improve the quality of reticulated water supplied to customers,” Cr Doolan concluded.
