Stanthorpe water given all clear

QUEENSLAND Health hasgiven Stanthorpe town water supply the all clear after it passed three consecutive days of negative results for nasties.

Mayor Ron Bellingham said the tests were carried outafter the water treatment plant was affected by flooding in Quart Pot Creek on Tuesday last week.

“The treatment plant and chlorination process has been fully operational since Wednesday, so the risk to the general public has been very small,” Cr Bellingham said.

“None-the-less we advised boiling of water until the full all-clear was received.”

That came yesterday afternoon after water samplestaken over three consecutive days returned negative readings for E. coli bacteria and other water-borne bugs.

Testing on Killarney, Wallangarra and Pratten town water is continuing and residents using this water are still advised to boil water for three minutes.
