Water Main Break – Byron Street, Lennox Head: Ballina Shire

Water Main Break - Byron Street, Lennox Head

Council’s crews are attending to a water main break that has occurred this morning on Byron Street, near Banksia Avenue, in Lennox Head.

Water supply is temporarily unavailable to properties along Byron Street, Daintree Drive, Fern Street, Lakefield Avenue, Yuraygir Place, Cooloola Avenue, Banksia Avenue, Sunrise Crescent and Cooper Close.

Properties north of Byron Street may also experience low water pressure, or a complete water outage, for the duration of the repair works.

Ballina Shire Council’s Water and Wastewater team will make every effort to resolve this matter as quickly as possible.

Council apologises for the inconvenience and will continue to provide updates via local media and Council’s website once more information is available.

Here’s some things to remember that will assist you during this outage:

  • During any water disruption it’s important to leave your taps off as the water may return at any time.
  • When water returns it may be discoloured. This is due to sediment. Please run the tap until your water runs clear.
  • Your water may appear milky. This is caused by small air bubbles. Don’t be alarmed it is not harmful, and will settle in a short period.

If you have any enquiries in regard to this matter please contact council’s Water and Wastewater Section on 1300 864 444.
