A report that was released last year said that NSW (New South Wales) Health found that water from the Delegate River contains high pollution levels. Considering this, residents of the town believe that the water quality was always a problem for them but they were never asked to take proper steps in this regard.
Last year the report was given by NSW Health department to the Bombala Shire Council.
You have to ask, if the water is bad, why not fix it, or warn people, or issue a boil order or something. Seems like an easy call. Seems like nothing too tough. Why just pass your report along to the Bombala Shire Council? Why is the best that anyone can tell you is,
" A meeting by delegates is also expected in near future?"
You know the answer and so do I.
NSW town furious at dangerous water supply
Residents of a small town in southern New South Wales say they have been kept in the dark about pollution in their water supply.
But a report late last year from NSW Health found the water from the Delegate River is too polluted to drink.
Last year's NSW Health draft report was provided to the Bombala Shire Council, which is holding a meeting in Delegate this afternoon.
