Residents of the Gardens of Apolline residential blocks in Condamine will be able to use hot and cold water again after a detailed report found no trace of iron or other contaminants in the water pipes.
The Public Works Department finished a major overhaul on July 21, which involved the installation of sand filters and UV sterilisation devices and other measures. The government has therefore decided to lift all restrictions on the use of water in the buildings.
Samples taken on Monday, July 24, confirmed that the remedial work had met expectations. Meanwhile, the cold-water distribution system checks by SMEAUX have all produced consistent results. In order to put residents’ minds at rest, further sampling will continue on a regular basis.
