    Avoca Lagoon water main replacement works
    As part of our commitment towards delivering quality water and sewer infrastructure across the region, Central Coast Council Water and Sewer are working with Eire Construction to replace the water transfer trunk main under Avoca Lagoon. Using trenchless technology, boring underneath the lagoon has commenced to construct the new main. Works will primarily be between Heazlett Park and Lake Street, Avoca. The alignment of the watermain has been designed to completely bypass the Bareena Wetland where the Green and Golden Bell Frogs breed. This upgrade is essential as the water main supplies the Copacabana Reservoir and is critical for supplying water to the residents of North Avoca, Avoca Beach, Copacabana and Macmasters Beach. There will be limited access for users of these areas while Council is working on site.
