Which state’s water supply is safe to drink?
Water is a critical element of our national infrastructure.
It is a vital component of our health and our economy.
We all rely on water for our drinking water, food and medical treatment.
Water is the most reliable, clean and affordable resource in the world.
It can be provided by the state or territory and used to cool homes, heat homes, deliver water to customers, and provide electricity to businesses.
But for many years, the water we drink has been subject to high levels of contamination.
This contamination has resulted in severe health impacts.
In many parts of the world, the level of lead in drinking water is above safe drinking water standards.
As a result, there is widespread concern about water quality and drinking water safety in many parts.
It’s a global problem.
The Australian Water Supply Association is a non-profit, community-based organisation that provides water quality information to consumers and business.
We work closely with the State Government and local water supply agencies to ensure that the supply of safe water is maintained and maintained safe.

The AWS recommends that people: drink only water with a minimum of 12 parts per million (ppm) lead.
The more lead, the more dangerous it is to drink.
People should only use water with at least a 12-ppm lead level.
The most common type of lead found in drinking-water is the so-called ‘safer’ type, which can be safely removed from the water by using chlorination.
However, it is not recommended for use in children under 3 years of age.
Water quality testing is carried out at every point of use, with tests done for lead and fluoride, and for chlorine.
If there is an unsafe level of the lead in a water source, the drinking water supplier must change the water to a less contaminated water.
For example, in many countries, a water supplier that does not regularly test for lead, fluoride or chlorine would be deemed to be in breach of the Clean Water Act.
The water supply operator must take the steps necessary to make the water supply safe.
The State Government must ensure that water supplies are maintained at safe levels of lead and chlorine and that any health or environmental impacts that occur are addressed.
The Department of Environment and Heritage has issued a report detailing the current state of water quality in Australia.
It outlines the steps it takes to ensure safe water supply in Australia and describes the water quality testing that is carried in place.
