Your health is at risk – ACT NOW!
Scotland Islanders are facing serious health threats from sewage run-off.
You and your family risk contracting urinary tract infections, meningitis and other serious mosquito-borne diseases like Ross River and Dengue Fevers.
Sewage run-off is a public health risk in Pittwater through exposure to pooled effluent, contaminated soils and indirect exposure in waterways.
AND IT’S GETTING WORSE!
A study commissioned by SIRA found Faecal Coliform levels are 645 times above the recommended safety level & Enterococci Levels are 2,600 times.
To make matters worse, Sydney Water is about to break a promise to our community to provide waste water infrastructure to Scotland Island. Click here
WE CAN’T LET THIS HAPPEN
Since 2000, Scotland Island has been listed in the Priority Sewerage Program (PSP)in Sydney Water’s Operating Licence for 2010-15. For the past five years we’ve been waiting for the detailed plans so we could engage our community in an informed discussion about their options.
Now Sydney Water is seeking through IPART to remove Scotland Island for the following reasons from its Priority Sewerage Program! The range of our options is being severely threatened!
