A precautionary low-dose chlorine treatment is to be added to the Dunsandel water supply for a week starting this afternoon (Wednesday 15 January).
A first round of low-dose chlorine treatment from 7-10 January saw a significant reduction in the number of total coliforms in the water supply. The Council is acting with a second low-dose chlorine treatment as testing has shown some coliforms remain. The low-dose chlorine treatment is precautionary only, and no E.coli has been detected within the water supply. Residents do not need to boil water.
The Dunsandel supply provides water to approximately 200 households.
