Pollution Incident Response Management Plan (PIRMP)

Water Monitoring


Potable Water

In order to ensure the high quality of the water supplied to you we regularly send it for testing at NSW government recognised health laboratories.


Sewerage Effluent

At the other end of the system we also monitor the quality of the water we are putting back into the environment, regularly sending if for sampling at EPA recognised health laboratories. Our results show we consistently outperform our environmental requirements.
