                            BOIL WATER ALERT - ROSS
                                  Tuesday 12 January 2010


Ben Lomond Water Chief Executive Officer Barry Cash said today that a temporary boil water alert had
been issued for the township of Ross.

“Routine tests detected low levels of E coli in water supplied to the town,” Mr Cash said.

“Ben Lomond Water is working with the Department of Health and Human Services following the
micro-biological failure.

“Ben Lomond Water advises residents that all drinking water should be brought to a rolling boil before
use.

“The Department of Health and Human Services has been advised and is supportive of this action,” Mr
Cash said.

Investigations are underway into the cause of the micro-biological failure and it is hoped that the boil
water alert can be lifted by the weekend.
