On December 18, council advised that the pipeline between Mulgum Creek and DE Williams Dam has become contaminated with sediment.
Effective chlorine disinfection could not be assured for customers connected to the water supply between Weir and Dam.
This situation did not affect those connected to Nimbin village's water supply.
