Ballina Council says that water supply is temporarily unavailable to properties on Pinnacle Row, and parts of Ballina Street, Lennox Head due to a water main break on North Creek Road that occurred this morning.

Council is asking that residents please refrain from using water at this time. Ballina Shire Council’s Water and Wastewater team will make every effort to resolve this matter as quickly as possible.

Council says they apologise 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.
