Update on Young Water Supply System

Feb 15, 2021

Following the issuing and subsequent lifting of a Boil Water Alert, Council have continued to conduct testing on the Young Water Supply System as part of the usual operational testing regime. All results have indicated that the water quality is safe for drinking. Council is satisfied that there is no public health risk to the Young Water Supply System users.

The Boil Water Alert was enacted as a precautionary measure after a sample from the Young water supply returned a positive E.Coli result.

Council will continue to monitor the network daily as part of our standard operating procedures and do not anticipate any further abnormal results or disruption to water supply.

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