District Council advises that a precautionary boil water notice has been issued
for the Mt Somers water supply, effective immediately.
connected to this scheme should boil their drinking water, and water used in
food preparation and for hygiene purposes for at least three minutes before
equipment at the treatment plant has detected that the quality of the water is
not as clear as it should be, and this has reduced the effectiveness of the
ultraviolet (UV) disinfection treatment.
disinfection is used to target viruses, bacteria and protozoa that may be
present in water by killing them or rendering them inactive.
Mt Somers UV disinfection equipment is working correctly, however it is less
effective during periods when the water isn’t as clear as it should be.
precautionary boil water notice will remain in place until further advised by
