National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) manages, operates and supplies potable drinking water supply to paying connections to businesses and residences and non-paying connections to NPWS buildings or NPWS visitor infrastructure. All connections have water meters, which are read and recorded quarterly for invoicing. Potable water is supplied under a Drinking Water Quality Assurance Program and regulated by NSW Health. We manage and maintain all water supply infrastructure: bores, pumps, tanks, telemetry and pipework.
We manage Kittys Flat Sewer Treatment System, which is regulated by an Environment Protection Authority licence. We manage and maintain all sewer infrastructure: grinder pumps, septic tanks, sewer lines and treatment facilities.
National Parks and Wildlife Service and Bathurst Regional Council collaborate on a shared, step-by-step procedure to ensure the integrity of Hill End utilities and to assist Bathurst Regional Council with certification.
