Water Supply Infrastructure

Investing in infrastructure to future proof our water supply.

Parkes Shire Council is strengthening water security for the Shire through a number of initiatives, and drawing on various water sources including dams, river, bores and recycled water.

The new Parkes Water Treatment Plant draws water from three sources – the Lachlan River, the bore fields, and Lake Endeavour Dam. The raw water is mixed, filtered, and disinfected and the potable water is sent to reservoirs waiting for you to turn on your tap.

Council operators test the drinking water network daily to ensure the water supply meets the requirements of the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines and is safe to drink.
