Anna Bligh destroys thousands of bottles of her 'NEWater' recycled water ...

Excerpt from Sunday Mail:

22 August 2010

Tens of thousands of bottles of purified recycled water from Queensland's mothballed recycled water pipeline have been secretly destroyed by the Bligh Government.

The Sunday Mail can reveal the State Government had planned a taxpayer-funded publicity campaign centred on handing out thousands of bottles of water from the largely idle $1.5 billion Western Corridor Recycled Water Scheme, in a last-ditch bid to convince Queenslanders that treated effluent was safe to drink.

But the bottles of water - at least 40,000 - were never distributed. Instead they were stored in a warehouse before being secretly destroyed in May at a waste facility in Ipswich, west of Brisbane.
