Byron Bay Additional Flow Path - A drainage upgrade project

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
The Additional Flow Path will better manage the flow of treated water from the Byron Sewage Treatment Plant.

The Additional Flow Path is a drainage upgrade project to better manage treated water from the Byron Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) and stormwater flows across the Belongil Catchment area.

The proposed additional flow path will use public drainage land within the Byron Arts and Industry Estate. New pipeline will be required from the Byron STP to the Industrial Drain. Green areas will be created as part of the public drainage upgrade.

Location

The Additional Flow Path stretches over 2.3km in length. It extends from the Byron Bay Wetlands (at the STP), diagonally south-east across the Byron Industrial Estate (using the Industrial Drain corridor) and continues to Ewingsdale Road. It rejoins the Central Drain at the southern end of Belongil Creek.


Current stage

This project is under construction and due for completion early 2022.

The Project Team are available to answer questions directly via the Q&A tab or email the Project Team.

    Does this facilitate the STP in eliminating unlicensed extra water into the Belongil Creek?

    Laz asked 7 days ago

    The Byron STP does not discharge any unlicensed water.

    Will it necessary to cut down more trees around the STP in order to construct this drain and so-called greenspaces.

    Laz asked 7 days ago

    86 trees have been removed. The majority of these trees were regrowth species (<5m in height) and located within existing modified areas of the Activity works area.

    In response to the removal, and in accordance with Chapter B2 – Preservation of Trees and Other Vegetation of Byron DCP 2014, 430 native compensatory plantings (5:1 gain/loss ratio) will offset this loss.

    The project has provided over 3,000 extra native plants (eg. Lomandra Hystrix and Libertia Paniculata) around the Industrial Estate in Byron Bay as part of the landscaping scope for the Additional Flow Path project.

    Does this facilitate an extra concentration of stormwater runoff into The Belongil Creek?

    Laz asked 7 days ago

    No, the Additional Flow Path project does not facilitate additional stormwater runoff to the Belongil Creek.

    will this project include any work on other existing drainage canals in the industrial estate? In particular, the large canal between the sports field and Centennial Cct.

    JAS asked about 1 year ago

    The Additional Flow Path project stretches over 2.3km in length. It is limited to the section commencing from the Byron Bay Wetlands (at the STP), diagonally south-east across the Byron Industrial Estate (using the Industrial Drain corridor) and continues to Ewingsdale Road. It rejoins the Central Drain at the southern end of Belongil Creek. 

    Other drainage corridors within the Byron Arts and Industry Estate may be reviewed as part of the Precinct Plan to determine how they could be used for additional purposes, such as pedestrian/cycle paths or green space.
