Could Livingstone have best water in the state

THE Livingstone Shire Council has been announced a finalist in the Ixom Best of the Best Queensland Water Taste Test and Adam Rose can understand why.

A Yeppoon resident and CQUniversity research scientist in drinking water quality, Adam said he's been to two of the annual events himself.

"We have one of the more natural water supplies in Queensland because there's no development upstream from where we source our water," Mr Rose said yesterday.

"I think it's important to have a focus regionally on our water quality." After being crowned Central Queensland's top drop at the regional final of the 2015 Ixom Best of the Best Queensland Water Taste Test, Livingstone Shire Council will now put its tap water where the judge's mouths are for the grand final.

The taste test will take place at the in Maroochydore on Thursday November 5. Councillor Adam Belot said it's was an excellent achievement for council to make it to the grand final.

"Our community highly values the pristine water supply that has its source from the dunal fed aquifer in Byfield National Park and areas further north," Cr Belot said.
