Oyster growerswere also impacted on by the influx of fresh water, however an issue with townsewer system was contained at Rotary Park.

Eurobodalla ShireCouncil director of infrastructure services Warren Sharpe said the rain causedminor delays to works on the highway at Narooma requiring workers to rework anddry back gravel.

Proposed works inthe near future include the kerb and gutter of the highway, initial sealing ofthe highway, backfilling of the pathway areas, as well as turfing and tidy upprior to the long weekend ready for this busy time and the Blues Festival, hesaid.

After the longweekend, Mr Sharpe said the contractor would place the asphalt to provide theroad and roundabout pavement capable of carrying the highway traffic loads.

“This will fillthe area between the new kerbs on the roadway,” he said.

“We are nowassessing the submissions on the landscape design and these will be consideredby the Narooma Streetscape Steering Committee early in October prior tofinalising the landscape plans.”

Residents canalso follow project updates on the council’s new website.

Narooma oysterfarmers meanwhile faced a temporary closure when salinity levels dropped belowminimum levels.

Grower DavidMaidment said an issue with the town sewer system was however contained atRotary Park with no overflow going into the lake.

Mr Sharpe saidthe notification was precautionary as council could not guarantee a small spillhad not occurred.

“It is veryimportant that we err on the side of protection of the health of the communityin such circumstances,” he said.

“Our teamscovered the situation of the poor weather, extra infiltration into our systemand power outages using our mobile generators.

“We will continueto work closely with the oyster growers in the area, recognising the importanceof this industry.”
