Drinking water

Public Health Minister Emil Lee has emphatically made clear that our drinking water is safe. We are confident that this is a true statement.

It is also a useful clarification after initial reports about the discovery of unwanted bacteria at several locations in the distribution network.

The explanation provided by the inspector-general about the drinking water is also useful.

To some, bottled water still may taste better, but based on the statements that are now made public, there is no reason to assume that our drinking water poses a hazard to public health.
