Mid-Western Regional Council lift boil water alert after days of sampling
March 17 2022
A Boil Water Alert for Rylstone, Kandos, Charbon and Clandulla has been lifted after testing confirmed the water supply is safe to drink.
The townships were placed on a Boil Water Alert on Thursday, March 10 following a storm event that increased turbidity of water entering the Rylstone Water Treatment Plant.
Council has undertaken daily sampling since the alert was put into place and results from an external lab confirm the water supply now meets Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.
In consultation with NSW Health, Council has lifted the Boil Water Alert and will continue to monitor the system.
This means residents in Rylstone, Kandos, Charbon and Clandulla can safely consume water direct from their taps for drinking and cooking without having to boil it first.
Council would like to thank residents for their patience and co-operation.
Recent storms have caused problems with water treatment at the Rylstone Water Treatment Plan making drinking water in the Rylstone, Kandos, Charbon and Clandulla areas unsafe.
