Letter: Why didn't council explain about water sooner?

Letter to the editor from Cliff Aitkin, of Tannum Sands:

IT'S a pity that it took the involvement of the Gladstone Observer to uncover the exact problem with the recycled water from the Tannum Sands sewerage plant.

RELATED:

>> Council leaves sporting clubs without water supply

>> E. Coli found in water used on sporting fields

Why didn't the council inform the affected sporting clubs back in April of the real problem instead of making vague references to urgent maintenance and broken pumps, etc.?

Was it because they didn't want the general community to know about the obvious short-comings of the new multi-million-dollar Tannum Sands sewerage plant?

Anyhow, where to now? Will the council rectify the situation or keep pumping the problem to QAL?
