Boort water quality

  • Boort

We are experiencing poor raw water quality in the raw water supply at Boort.

Customers may notice musty or earthy odour in their drinking water.

There are no health risks associated with the town water supply.  It is safe for all drinking, bathing and food preparation purposes and it continues to comply with all health-based guideline values in the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

We are building and commissioning a new piece of equipment to assist in the removal of taste and odour compounds, which is due to be completed by the end of August 2022.

We apologise for any inconvenience and will provide further updates on our Interruptions page on our website and social media.
