Central Tablelands County Council, trading as Central Tablelands Water (CTW) is a water supply authority constituted under NSW Local Government legislation.  Located in the central west of New South Wales, CTW services a geographically large, but sparsely populated area.  This area ranges from Blayney in the east, to Grenfell in the west.

CTW currently has 5,500 connections (customers) and provides potable water to around 11,500 consumers in 14 towns and villages.  Our main water source is Lake Rowlands and water from this source is supplemented during summer by various groundwater bores.

Lake Rowlands

Lake Rowlands Dam, formerly known as Coombing Dam, is situated on the Coombing Rivulet, a tributary of the Belubula River and provides the bulk of CTW's water supply. The Dam was designed in 1939 by Gutteridge, Haskins and Davey as a reinforced concrete slab and buttress type dam with a top water level (TWL) at RL 882.70m. This type of construction is rather unusual, and the dam is one of only a handful of slab and buttress dams built in Australia.
