As part of our commitment to maintaining quality water infrastructure across the Central Coast, we have identified the need to replace the water transfer trunk main under Avoca Lagoon.

Over recent years, the water transfer trunk main located under Avoca Lagoon has had several breaks and now needs to be replaced to help minimise potential environmental risks.

The water main supplies the Copacabana Reservoir and is critical for supplying essential water services to residents of North Avoca, Avoca Beach, Copacabana, and Macmasters Beach.

Using trenchless technology, boring underneath the lagoon will be undertaken to construct the new main.


How will the works affect me?

Noise: As a result of these works there will be loud noise associated with machinery on site during the period of construction. The contractor will instal noise reducing barriers to try and minimise the disruption. However, the community should be prepared to experience periods of loud noise over the course of these works. 

It is anticipated that the loudest component of these works is due for completion by Thursday 4 July 2024. We appreciate the community’s patience over the course of these essential water upgrades.

Traffic: The carpark and road at end of Tramway will be closed during the works however, your property will remain accessible. There will also be limited at Ficus Avenue carpark. 

Hours of work

Due to the geotechnical ground conditions, the methodology to progress these works has been updated requiring this phase of the project to be completed on a continuous basis to reduce environmental risk and ensure the overall duration of the project is not extended.

Monday to Friday: 7am-6pm  
Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 June: 8am-6pm.

We appreciate the community's patience whilst we undertake upgrades of your local water service.
