Water Quality QnA

Some new plumbing fittings may initially leach and release small amounts of materials such as lead and nickel into the water.

Most test results taken from comprehensive water sampling in K-Block have been within the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

Flushing and regular use of taps has been effective in reducing the concentration of these materials in K-Block taps to date and will continue during operational commissioning.

Bottled water will be available to staff until testing shows that K-Block’s drinking water meets the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

Patients are currently provided with bottled water and this standard practice will continue after K-Block is occupied.
