What is the future of Lismore? Here are some ideas for what it could be

After the devastating floods of 2022 the future of Lismore was thrown up in the air and it was time to take a long hard look at what the future of the town would be. 

Water and Recycling proposed to the Water Waste and Sewer Advisory Committee in 2018 for the committee to endorse a five-year plan to bring a company in to reline the sewerage gravity mains and reline some sewer manholes in Mullumbimby over five years to address the inflow infiltration issue occurring in Mullumbimby at a cost of $250,000 a year.

This contract ends in 2024, to date no visible evidence has been supplied such as CCTV footage of the mains particularly in the CBD of Mullumbimby that have been successfully relined.

As far as I know, there has been no change to substantial increase to inflows into the Brunswick Valley Waste Water Treatment Plant during prolonged rain events.

I am amazed that Council’s executive, responsible for monitoring this project, apparently has not asked for evidence of the relining process having been successfully completed.
