It’s that time of year again when the coastal water serviced by the Cattermull Ave treatment plant smells and tastes awful. Rest assured that the drinking water is perfectly ok to consume.
As quoted by Cr Bartel last year in the New Mail, it is caused by an algal bloom in the Sunwater Irrigation Channel system.
There are three pickup points in Bundaberg for potable water deliveries. North Bundaberg water tower, University Drive, and Cattermull Ave.
This time of year we offer our coastal clients alternative water from North Bundaberg or University Drive instead of Cattermull Ave.
