State Labor is calling for an immediate ban on all public access to reservoirs following revelations that it could pose a risk to public health.
A confidential audit commissioned by SA Water and produced by SA Health has recently been leaked to media and the Opposition. It says there is a serious threat of contamination if the Government rushes into opening reservoirs; especially if water activities are allowed.
The State Government has allowed partial access at Myponga Reservoir and has plans in the near future for South Para and Hope Valley.
