Water and Sewer Services Information

Rainwater Tanks

 

Gosford City Council provides water and sewerage services to around 160,000 people across the region. There are over 70,000 properties connected to our water supply system and around 68,000 to our sewer network.

Council collects treats and delivers drinking water to most of the Gosford local government area and then transports, treats and disposes of its wastewater.

Since 1977 council has been working with Wyong Shire Council to manage the delivery of drinking water to the Central Coast.

If you suspect a water main break, sewage overflow or any other fault with the water supply or sewer network anywhere in the Local Government Area, please contact council immediately on (02) 4325 8222. Help is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Water and Sewer pricing

Council's water, sewerage and stormwater prices are determined by the NSW Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART). IPART sets the maximum prices that council can charge based on the efficient costs of providing those services.

The current water, sewerage and drainage fees and charges are presented in council’s list Fees and Charges.

For more information including council’s submissions and IPART pricing determinations visit the IPART Website.

WaterPlan 2050

WaterPlan 2050 is the long term blueprint developed by Gosford City and Wyong Shire Councils for managing the Central Coast’s water resources over the next four decades.

Key objectives include:

  • Further enhance the current water supply system;
  • Continue to use water as efficiently as possible; and
  • Develop additional future sources of water.

Both councils have formally endorsed the long term water supply strategy and work has now begun on implementing the key actions outlined in this plan. View the WaterPlan 2050 Strategy.
