ACTEW take a another swing at Googong water

johnboy 5 January 2007 4

The ABC informs us that the big Kahuna’s at ACTEW think they’ve found something they can throw in the water from Googong to make it taste less like a toilet.

Which still raises the question of how they couldn’t have noticed the water wasn’t up to scratch before they inflicted it on the public just before Christmas?

Finally tastes normal today.

I think this ‘dirty’ water problem has been good: it might make all those arseholes who overwater their lawn & gardens and wash their cars every weekend think long and hard about the drought and the impact it’s having on South-Eastern Australia.

Recently 2CC interviewed a fellow from ACTEW about this issue. The bloke from ACTEW questioned whether there was indeed any public disquiet over the quality of ACT water, pointing out that they had only received around 25 complaints. Clearly he did not see this level of complaint as a “KPI”. I can assure the guy from ACTEW that the water quality issue has been discussed extensively in the community (and is of concern). Surely 25 formal complaints or thereabouts (particularly at this time of the year) are a reasonable indicator that there ARE concerns in the community about our water quality!

Methylphenidate (aka Ritalin) so we won’t complain about the taste?
