CENTRAL COAST COUNCIL SAYS DRINKING WATER IS SAFE

Central Coast Council says tap water is safe to drink after residents complained about ongoing discolouration.

Close to a dozen suburbs have been impacted by poor water quality – including Gosford, Bensville and the Peninsula.

The local government says while it’s “unappealing”, it happens from time to time.

It says its regular pipe-flushing program has been hampered by more pressing storm-related repairs.
