Plumbers sound warning

BANANA will get $250,000 in State Government funding to help establish its recycled water project, but the Master Plumbers Association of Queensland wants improved quality systems implemented at the same time to avoid problems.

Association president Bob Kimlin said the plans were already under way to use recycled water for industry, but he said the MPAQ wanted to ensure proper plans were in place to ensure that raw sewage could not escape into the waterways as a result.

He said they were seeking assurances from the Government and the shire that they were also putting into place a series of systems that prevented problems such as power supply failure, which could let raw sewage escape.
