Boil Water Alerts

Current Boil Water Advice

There are currently no boil water alerts

Although the town of Gormanston has recently been removed from the serviced land layer, residents are still receiving a water supply managed and controlled by TasWater. Until suitable installations associated with the service replacement have been completed, it is important that the residents of Gormanston continue to boil their water.

TasWater regularly samples its water supplies.  Sometimes the treatment of a water supply may not be adequate, increasing the risk of health concerns.  If this happens, TasWater issues a Boil Water Alert.

When a Boil Water Alert is issued, water should be brought to a rolling boil and allowed to cool before use.  Residents in affected areas should use cool boiled water for drinking, food preparation, cleaning teeth or gargling, washing un-cooked foods (such as salads or seafood) or making ice.  Dishes should be washed in hot soapy water or in a dishwasher.

If your property is supplied by TasWater in an area affected by a Boil Water Alert you should ensure that all occupants, including rental tenants, are notified.
