After boiling water for three weeks, Brungle residents can again drink from the tap

Jan 23 2024:

The Boil Water Notice in place in the village of Brungle since 29 December, 2023, has now been lifted.

After Snowy Valleys Council consulted with NSW Health, the water in the Brungle reticulation was deemed safe to drink from Friday (19 January).

The council worked with NSW Health and the state’s Department of Planning and Environment water inspectors to resolve the problems with the water-treatment plant, which included electrical issues and plant equipment failure.

The delay in repair was attributed to business closures over the Christmas period.

Faulty equipment has been replaced and additional water quality monitoring and intensive flushing of the water supply network have been carried out, along with the normal operational monitoring of the water supply.

Water samples were also sent for microbial analysis and the results were shared with NSW Health.
