Sewer and water connections

We provide water and sewer services in most towns and villages across the Clarence Valley.

Water connection

Before applying, call Council on 02 6643 0200 to check if standard fees apply. It's important to check this as some properties require additional Contribution to Capital payments in order to connect.

Currently, we provide reticulated water services via three separate water supply systems to:

Angourie Grafton South Grafton
Ashby Gulmarrad Townsend
Brooms Head Harwood Island Tucabia
Brushgrove Ilarwill Ulmarra
Chatsworth Iluka Waterview Heights
Copmanhurst Junction Hill Woodford Island
Coutts Crossing Lawrence Wooli (Lake Hiawatha)               
Cowper Maclean Wooloweyah
Eatonsville and Seelands             Minnie Water (Lake Minnie Water)               Woombah
Glenreagh Mountain View Yamba

 

Villages and rural populations outside these areas rely on private water supply systems, rainwater tanks and groundwater extraction for domestic water supply.

To apply 

Before applying, call Council on 02 6643 0200 to check if standard fees apply. It's important to check this as some properties require additional Contribution to Capital payments in order to connect.

Sewer connection 

Most new sewer connections to new buildings are approved during the development application process. For sewer connections to an existing building, call 02 6643 0200 for advice.

Angourie Junction Hill Townsend
Coutts Crossing          Maclean Wooloweyah

Villages and rural populations outside of these areas rely on on-site systems for effluent management. Council requires environmentally sustainable management of on-site systems through its Onsite Wastewater Management Strategy.
