something in the water

9 October, 2012

Mr F.M. LOGAN: […] I have photographs to show what are effectively iron oxides and various other organic elements in the water. That has ended up discolouring all the clothes in the washing machine. Clothes end up dirtier as a result of being washed in Water Corporation water than had they not been put in the washing machine. I would like to lay on the table for the rest of the day’s sitting some examples of water from Kingston in Australind. Here are some examples of the nice brown stuff.

[The items were tabled for the information of members.]

Mr F.M. LOGAN: The minister is more than welcome to have a swig of that.

Mr W.R. Marmion: When were the water samples taken?

Mr F.M. LOGAN: Three weeks ago.
That is what residents have been paying 50 per cent more for since 2008. If the minister thinks that is quite acceptable, I would strongly encourage him to pour some of that into the glass he may have in front of him and show the rest of the house how he can swig it down without any fear or favour!
