Frequently Asked Questions

Is rainwater safe to drink?
The Tweed's town water supply remains the most reliable source of safe and quality drinking water for the community. If you have access to town water, NSW Health recommends limiting the use of rainwater to other uses, such as toilet flushing, washing clothes, watering the garden, washing the car, filling swimming pools and fire fighting.
Rainwater tanks are generally NOT recommended for drinking from in urban areas due to traffic and industry emmissions that can settle on roofs.
Monitoring your water quality closely will help you to quickly detect potential contaminants, which may pose a risk to your health. The tank itself will need to be cleaned out from time to time. If in doubt, you may want to have your water tested. See Tweed Laboratory Centre.
