The George River Water Quality Panel has found there are no water quality issues in the George River.
These findings give a clean bill of health for treated drinking water to the local community, ruling out fears of a cancer cluster in the St Helens area, pesticides in the water as well as Eucalyptus nitens toxicant issues for local oyster growers.
“The bottom line is that there is no indication that the treated water is not safe to drink at St Helens”
“In essence the panel found that the river foam samples that were referred to in the Australian Story report broadcast by the ABC in February this year were not representative of the naturally occurring water in the George River”
Panel Spokesperson and Water Quality Expert, Dr Graeme Batley
