Dam­aged main im­pacts sup­ply

The Daily Examiner - - NEWS -

THE trunk water main which ser­vices Yamba was dam­aged yes­ter­day as a re­sult of works on the new Har­wood bridge as part of the Wool­go­olga to Bal­lina Pa­cific High­way Up­grade. The dam­age re­sulted in sig­nif­i­cant water pres­sure loss for much of the area, ac­cord­ing to a Clarence Val­ley Coun­cil spokesman. He said only three prop­er­ties lost to­tal sup­ply, but many, par­tic­u­larly around Pi­lot Hill in Yamba, would ex­pe­ri­ence ex­tremely low water pres­sure. “There is work be­ing done to re­place the roof to the reser­voir sup­ply­ing Pi­lot Hill, so they will have next to no pres­sure,” the spokesman said. Re­pairs were car­ried out yes­ter­day af­ter­noon and it was hoped nor­mal sup­ply would re­sume by 6pm yes­ter­day. He said coun­cil work­ers had been able to re-route water sup­ply to Yamba in the in­terim, while they re­paired the dam­age.
