Every day, Gosford City Council supplies around 33 million litres of water to approximately 60,000 properties through 1,000 kilometres of water mains.
The catchments are largely undeveloped and uninhabited with the water coming from the rivers, creeks and dams in the Gosford and Wyong Local Government Areas.
Council moves water from the catchment to our water filtration plant at Somersby, where it is filtered and disinfected to ensure it is safe to drink.
Gosford's water supply is considered soft or moderately soft, and is generally below 60mg/L. More information about the hardness of our water is available in the Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
