Lithgow City Council has engaged the services of Interflow Pty Ltd, to conduct relining for 2.3 kilometres of sewer mains in the Lithgow area from Monday, February 10.
This process is completed by cleaning the lines and identifying any possible breaks or obstructions in the line, correcting or repairing the damaged line and relining using a sleeve or sealant to coat and repair the lines extending the useful life of the assets.
During the cleaning process Council and Interflow advise residents to place the lid of their toilets down and ensure that any drains on the property that are connected to sewer are used prior to cleaning to make sure all bends are filled with water and won't allow the high pressure water from entering the property.
Interflow will provide information to residents via a letterbox drop prior to work taking place.
Council advises residents to follow instruction provided by Interflow to avoid any issues with sewerage and cleaning which will allow contractors to carry out their work with as minimal disturbance to residents as possible.
