The NSW Water Commission says it’s not okay for children to drink drinking water at creek water and Zebra drinking spots in the state.
In a statement, the Commission says a NSW Water Safety and Performance Report shows the drinking water quality in the NSW River at the creek sites has improved, but it’s still not the same as the state’s drinking water standards.
“We’ve seen a significant improvement in drinking water and there is no evidence to suggest that drinking water in the creek water areas is unsafe,” the statement said.
“However, we are concerned about the water quality at the Zebra watering spots, which have been identified as potentially containing lead levels.”
The Commission urges all people to ensure they use water responsibly and responsibly use drinking water.
“The Commission also urges people to use filtered water.
The commission says it will review the water regulations and make any necessary changes in the future.
