Planned overnight water outage West Ballina

Planned overnight water outage West Ballina

Ballina Shire Council is continuing works to investigate potential water loss in the supply network in West Ballina. To complete this work Council will be temporarily turning off water to properties in West Ballina across two nights.

Residents and businesses will experience temporary water outages between 12am to 4.30am on Wednesday 30 November and 12am to 4.30am on Thursday 1 December.

This works is being completed at night to reduce the impact on households and businesses and there will not be any noise impact from this work.

This investigation is part of Council’s Water Loss Management Program. Managing water loss is important to reduce unnecessary losses between the water network and the point of delivery to the customer. This program is an important measure to save water, chemicals and energy.

Council apologises for any inconvenience caused and thanks residents and businesses for their patience while these essential works are completed.

Tips to prepare for a temporary water outage:

  • Store drinking water in preparation for the interruption.
  • When your water returns it may be discoloured. This is due to sediment. Please run the tap until your water runs clear.
  • Small air bubbles cause milky water; this is not harmful and will settle after a short period.
  • Please leave taps off during the interruption, as water may return at any time.

For any queries in relation to these works, please call Council’s Water and Wastewater team on 1300 864 444. Or visit our Water Outages webpage.
