Precautionary Advice for Drinking Water: Bulla Community
A Precautionary Advice for Drinking Water (Boil Water Alert) was issued today for the Bulla community, following advice that the water disinfection system is not functioning properly which could impact on the quality of the drinking water supply at Bulla.
Power and Water is investigating the problem and is undertaking works to ensure that the water supply will be safe to drink as soon as possible.
In the meantime as a precautionary measure, the Department of Health recommends that water for drinking, food preparation and oral hygiene be obtained from either packaged bottled water or by boiling tap water and allowing to cool prior to use.
The Department of Health will lift the Precautionary Advice for Drinking Water (Boil Water Alert) once Power and Water confirms when the Bulla water supply is safe to drink.
Anyone who has concerns can contact the department’s Environmental Health hotline during business hours on toll free 1800 095 646.
