How much iron is in our water?

Iron occurs naturally in water as a result of contact with soil or rock in the ground. Though the presence of iron does not present a health hazard, the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines recommend that, based on aesthetic considerations, the concentration of iron should not exceed 0.3 mg/L. In 2016-17, Busselton Water recorded a maximum of 0.096 mg/L in the water delivered to our customers.
