There is no need to boil your drinking water in Mullumbimby say Byron Shire Council.
‘Water network repairs are going well, and the reservoir is replenishing,’ they said in their flood recovery update.
‘It’s perfectly safe to drink.’
Some residents may still experience air pockets in their taps when they turn them on and the Council is reminding everyone that this is a normal part of the process.
Don’t use hose
However, until the reservoir fills sufficiently they are asking residents to be very careful in using the water as the supply is limited.
‘Please continue to use water sparingly and only for essential purposes of drinking, cooking and showers. Please, DO NOT USE YOUR HOSE for cleaning up – every drop counts to help us replenish the water supply.’
Bottled water is still available at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall.
