Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens Water spokesperson
The Greens welcome the news TasWater have committed to fixing the water supply to all 24 towns currently on "do not consume" and "boil water" alerts within two years. It is the core business of water corporations to deliver safe drinking water to the people.
Tasmanians need to be able to turn on the tap and know the water coming out is safe to drink.
For residents of towns, like Pioneer and Avoca, who have been dogged with water quality issues for years, this will come as a great relief.
