Water alert lifted for two towns in the region

UPDATE 10.40am: A BOIL water alert for residents in the Tenterfield shire has also been lifted.

Tenterfield Shire Council said they met with the Department of Health late yesterday to discuss the water situation.

They found the turbidity levels were within the required levels, so lifted awarning to boil water before use.

 

Original story: AFTER careful monitoring of the water quality between Mulgum Creek and the DE Williams Dam, the boiled water alert has been lifted.

On December 18, council advised that the pipeline between Mulgum Creek and DE Williams Dam has become contaminated with sediment.

Effective chlorine disinfection could not be assured for customers connected to the water supply between Weir and Dam.

This situation did not affect those connected to Nimbin village's water supply.
