Where will all the water go? Have your say on water reuse issue


When Byron’s Sewage Treatment Plant was built it was conditional upon 50% of its effluent (the cleaned water that comes out after the sewage has been treated). More than 10 years later this has not been achieved. It is extremely important that we manage this water that eventually flows into Belongil Creek.

At Council’s Ordinary Meeting on 22 June 2017 it was resolved to place the Byron Bay Urban Recycled Water Connection Policy on public exhibition for a period of 28 days for the making of public submissions.


This policy aims to facilitate the connection to the Byron Bay Urban Recycled Water Scheme by commercial enterprises, sporting associations or clubs that are located within 100 metres of the recycled water infrastructure.

The Plan is available for viewing at Council’s Administration Office, community access points around the Shire and on Council’s website at www.byron.nsw.gov.au/public-exhibition.

“Submissions should be in writing and addressed to the General Manager, Byron Shire Council, PO Box 219, Mullumbimby 2482 or sent by email to submissions@byron.nsw.gov.au.  Emailed submissions to this address only will be acknowledged.”

Date Submissions Close:    09 August 2017 at 4pm
