Gravesend Boil Water Alert – has been LIFTED

Published on 01 December 2022

Gwydir Shire Council advises that the boil water alert issued on Tuesday 20 September 2022 has been lifted and the water supply is now safe to drink.

This action has been taken following consultation with Hunter New England Local Health District.

The boil water alert was issued due to the runoff into the Gwydir River that caused problems for water treatment, making drinking water in Gravesend potentially unsafe.

Gwydir Shire Council have resolved the issue and water testing results over the past 5 days have indicated the water treatment process is under control and the water is now safe to drink.

Council is committed to drinking water quality management and will continue to test and monitor water supplies and inform the community if water quality parameter can not be maintained.
