Did you know that the real water loss average in NSW is 116L/connection daily? Based on this average, real water loss in our area is more than 33 million litres annually!
To reduce water loss, Council is currently completing a leak detection and reduction program. From Tuesday 26 April 2022, the team from Central West Leak Detection and Plumbing will be moving around the Cowra township area to identify any leaks in our water network. Investigations will take up to 8 weeks; during this time it is not anticipated that there will be any disruption to water supply.
The community can assist with leak reduction by continuing to report water mains breaks and leaking water meters.
For more information or questions about leak detection, please call Council’s Infrastructure and Operations Team on 02 6340 2070.
