Lithgow City Rangers recently received funds from EnergyAustralia to establish independent water and sewerage services to Rangers Park.
The finance will assist in the removal of the park's dependency on Wallerawang power station for water and sewerage services, and allow for a new connection to town water supply.
There will be construction of a new environmentally-friendly septic system, tank, evaporation mound covered with turf, and plumbing and electrical work.
Lithgow City Rangers vice president Paul Goodwin said the finance for the essential service meant the club could continue its 50 year history.
"Our club is maintained solely through the efforts of a small, yet dedicated, group of volunteers," he said.
He said fundraising efforts through the club were directed to the maintenance of the field and provided equipment to members.
"Works of this size [independent services] were well out of the club's budget," Goodwin said.
"With independent utility connections now established thanks to the team at Mt Piper power station, the Rangers now have the essential infrastructure needed to ensure our operations can continue."
In the early 2000s the park's energy supply was disconnected from the decommissioned Wallerawang power station and reconnected to the state's energy grid, where Rangers assumed responsibility for power costs, according to EnergyAustralia head of Mount Piper Greg McIntyre.
"The Rangers soccer park has a strong connection to the community's history in energy generation.
"All these years later, we are pleased there was an opportunity to be a good neighbour and to help them go independent," he said.
"There is a tremendous community spirit in the Lithgow region.
"We know how important the club is and the joy they bring locals on Sunday mornings in winter. We hope this remains the case for many more years."
