Water and Sewer

Bellingen Shire Council’s Water & Wastewater team operates and maintains the Bellingen Shire’s town water and sewerage services. 

We aim to:

  • provide your home or business with drinking water to National Health and Medical Research Council standards
  • collect, treat and manage reclaimed water in an environmentally and socially responsible manner 

Level C Water Conservation Measure Restrictions are currently in place for Shire residents who receive a town water supply.

A summary of Level C Water Conservation Measure Restrictions are:

  • No unattended hoses between the hours of 9:00am to 4:00pm.
