Water from tap back on the menu
TAP water is now safe to drink in the Whitsundays.
The previous Boiled Water Alert in Airlie Beach, Cannonvale and Bowen surrounds has now been lifted.
Whitsunday Mayor Andrew Willcox said there was no longer a public health concern over the quality of drinking water.
“The water for the whole Whitsunday region is now considered safe for all typical uses including drinking, use in food or beverages, person washing, dish washing, laundry purposes and flushing toilets,” he said.
