Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

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.
