墨尔本99个郊区的居民被警告暂时不要直接饮用自来水或用自来水准备食物,需要煮沸后再使用。
周四(27日)的极端天气导致大规模停电,使Silvan水坝中尚未消毒的水进入了墨尔本的供水系统。饮用受污染的水可能会导致肠胃疾病。
Yarra Valley Water供水公司已经通知了88个郊区的客户。South East Water公司将另外11个郊区加入此列表。据估计,约有25万户家庭受到了影响。
周五下午,South East Water公司表示问题已得到解决,但一些地区仍存在未消毒的水。
一位发言人说:“保险起见,我们发出了将水煮沸的建议,直到这个问题完全解决为止。”
维州卫生总监萨顿(Brett Sutton)说:“我们要求公众在使用自来水前将其煮沸,无论是用于饮用、刷牙还是做冰块,确保在使用前将水完全煮沸。”
未煮沸的水仍可用于洗手、洗澡、冲马桶、洗碗、洗衣服和浇花。
