ROMA WATER UPDATE - Boil Water Alert lifted in Roma
Maranoa Regional Council advises residents in the affected western zone of Roma that tap water used for drinking is now safe to consume.
This notice applies to all residents in Roma from Saturday, 30 September 2017.
There is no longer a public health concern over the quality of drinking water, and it is now considered safe for all typical uses including drinking, use in food or beverages, personal washing, dishwashing, laundry purposes and flushing toilets.
Council has worked closely with Queensland Health over the past four days to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. The bore that caused the incident has been physically disabled to protect the safety of the drinking water. Both agencies will continue to closely monitor the situation.
Residents who have been affected are advised to flush out the pipes in their homes by turning on their taps for approximately five minutes.
Council would like to remind all other residents outside of the previously affected zone that they are not required to boil their water.
Residents are asked to share this notice with neighbours and friends.
