National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) manages, operates, and supplies potable drinking water supply to paying connections to businesses/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 Environmental Protection Authority licence. We manage and maintains 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.
