Boil Water Notice Issued for Oxford Rural No. 2 Water Scheme

Published: 28-May-2018

High turbidity in the water following the heavy rain associated with ex-Cyclone Gita has resulted in a boil water notice being issued today on the Oxford No. 2 Rural Water Scheme.

Water should be boiled on a rolling boil for 3 minutes.

The scheme is currently being affected by discoloured water due to heavy rainfall within the catchment.

Residents are requested to inform any neighbours or friends on the Oxford Rural No.2 scheme who may not be aware of this notice.

Today’s notice has been issued as a precaution, in case the high turbidity impacts on the effectiveness of the chlorine disinfection applied to water on the scheme.

No evidence has been found to date of contamination within the network.
