Darlington (Victoria) – E.coli, Arsenic (REGULATED WATER SUPPLY)
“The quality of water produced by the Darlington is poor. It fails to meet Australian Drinking
Water Quality guidelines in relation to health based limits for E. coli and arsenic.
Due to health concerns, Darlington was previously declared by South West Water as a non
potable water supply zone, that is, the water is supplied with the intention that it not be used
for drinking or consumption. Extensive community consultation was undertaken in relation to
this issue. The Darlington supply was declared a Regulated Supply on 6th September 2006.”
