SEQ recycled water - Lawyer questions recycled water liability ...

A Gold Coast lawyer says it is unclear who will take responsibility if people become sick after drinking recycled water.

The Queensland Government intends to supplement south-east Queensland dams with treated recycled water if combined levels fall below 40 per cent.

Bruce Simmonds says there has been strong promotion of the benefits of drinking recycled water but nothing about liability.

"We believe that there is a great deal of concern amongst Queenslanders of what is going to be the effect of drinking this," he said.
