LAST week’s stormy weather has caused a minor delay on the roundabout project on the Narooma Flat.
Oyster growers were also impacted on by the influx of fresh water, however an issue with town sewer system was contained at Rotary Park.
Eurobodalla Shire Council director of infrastructure services Warren Sharpe said the rain caused minor delays to works on the highway at Narooma requiring workers to rework and dry back gravel.
Proposed works in the near future include the kerb and gutter of the highway, initial sealing of the highway, backfilling of the pathway areas, as well as turfing and tidy up prior to the long weekend ready for this busy time and the Blues Festival, he said.
After the long weekend, Mr Sharpe said the contractor would place the asphalt to provide the road and roundabout pavement capable of carrying the highway traffic loads.
“This will fill the area between the new kerbs on the roadway,” he said.
“We are now assessing the submissions on the landscape design and these will be considered by the Narooma Streetscape Steering Committee early in October prior to finalising the landscape plans.”
Residents can also follow project updates on the council's new website.
Narooma oyster farmers meanwhile faced a temporary closure when salinity levels dropped below minimum levels.
Grower David Maidment said an issue with the town sewer system was however contained at Rotary Park with no overflow going into the lake.
Mr Sharpe said the notification was precautionary as council could not guarantee a small spill had not occurred.
“It is very important that we err on the side of protection of the health of the community in such circumstances,” he said.
“Our teams covered the situation of the poor weather, extra infiltration into our system and power outages using our mobile generators.
“We will continue to work closely with the oyster growers in the area, recognising the importance of this industry.”
