Hi, We live at 47 Echidna Place Orange near the water filtration plant. From the maps i cannot tell if this goes onto our property.

FROM THE 'YOURSAY' SITE: Thanks for your comment. Adding chlorine to drinking water is about meeting widely-accepted standards of water-safety. Like Orange, some level of chlorine is routinely added to the drinking water used by residents of Spring Hill, and possible differences in taste might also have something to do with the village water being drawn from a nearby underground bore (compared to surface water in Orange).

At the moment, as a resident of Spring Hill, I can actually drink the water that comes out of my tap. When I visit family in Orange, I cannot drink their water due to the amount of chlorine in it. The smell nearly knocks you out as you bring the glass towards your mouth. Does this new pipeline mean I will now have to deal with the same water that residents in Orange have?
