Residents on Crane and Owen Streets in Ballina are advised of a planned water outage this Thursday May 13.

The Ballina Shire Council says it will be working along sections of the streets as part of the Crane Street Water Main Renewal project.

The temporary water outage is expected to impact some 28 properties on Crane Street between Norton Street and Owen Street and on Owen Street from the corner of Tamar Street to Burnet Street from 9am to 3pm on Thursday.

The council says drinking water won’t be available via internal or external water outlets during the outage and impacted residents will receive a notification flyer in their mailbox.

The council also says water may be discoloured when it is first restored due to sediment but running the tap until it turns clear is a simple solution.

Any enquiries can be made via the council’s Water and Wastewater Section on 1300 864 444.
