Australia's Water Quality: Is Your Drinking Water Safe?

Troubled Waters: Is Your Drinking Water Safe?

Disturbing news has come to light regarding the quality of tap water in parts of New South Wales, the ACT, Queensland and Victoria. These regions have been found to have levels of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in their tap water. The World Health Organization classifies these man-made chemicals as likely carcinogenic, raising serious concerns about their presence in our drinking water.

Further amplifying these concerns is the stark difference in regulations between Australia and the US. While the US has declared any level of PFOS and PFOA unsafe for consumption, Australia's current standards allow for PFOA levels a staggering 140 times higher. This discrepancy, coupled with the potential health risks, highlights the need for stricter regulations and a focus on ensuring safe drinking water for all Australians.

Analysis by Sydney's news publishers; Nine News and SMH, indicates a potential impact on a significant number of Australians around Canberra, Queenland, parts of Sydney, Newcastle and Victoria. Their estimates suggest that 1.8 million people could have been consuming water containing these chemicals since 2010.
