Boil Water Alert for Young Water Supply lifted

Feb 14, 2021

Council are pleased to announce that the precautionary boil water alert for the Young water supply has been lifted. Council has worked in close cooperation with NSW Health who have advised, following the review of several samples tested by an independent accredited laboratory, that the water is safe for consumption.

The boil water alert was enacted as a precautionary measure after a sample from the Young water supply returned positive E.Coli results. Council have conducted extensive sampling, flushing and retesting of the water supply and all samples returned by independent accredited laboratory prove that the water is safe to drink. In this regard, NSW Health have  deemed that there is no ongoing public health risk to the Young Water Supply System users.

Safety of our community is our highest priority and thank the community for their cooperation during this period and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Council acknowledges the collaborative and supportive approach that the Murrumbidgee & Southern NSW Local Health Districts Public Health Unit has provided throughout this process.
