Eton’s water supply
Council is committed to improving Eton's water supply, in particular the selenium and uranium in the Eton Bores.
In May 2018, council completed the new production bore (Eton Bore #3).
Water quality results for Bore #3 comply with Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG) health guideline values, including uranium and selenium limits.
The uranium and selenium levels for Bore #3 are slightly lower than Bore #1, the previous supply, and well below for Bore #2 which was taken offline in September 2016 after high uranium levels were detected.
Council is building a new treatment plant, which is expected to be completed this year, to reduce the hardness levels.
The below information and fact sheets have been developed by council in conjunction with Queensland Health to provide the Eton community with regular updates on their water supply and test results for selenium and uranium.
