Ballina Shire Council’s state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plants at Ballina and Lennox Head are a leading-edge example of the Council’s commitment to providing the services and infrastructure necessary for the future growth of the Shire.

In the lead up to World Water Day on Tuesday 22 March, Ballina Shire Council has celebrated the launch of this new water website.

This  website has been designed to promote information and practical advice about the way water is used and managed in our community.

Highlights include web pages dedicated to Council’s Recycled Water, Stormwater, Wastewater and Urban Water Cycle initiatives.

There’s also a Frequently Asked Questions section to make searching for answers easier.

Nearly 80 households at Lennox Head will have access to recycled water in July, in what Ballina Shire Council believes is a first for regional NSW.

Recycled water will initially be delivered to 77 new houses at Lennox Head for uses such as washing clothes, flushing toilets and watering the garden.
