The Katherine Times will stream live from today’s chemical contamination session if you can’t make it in person.
Because of the many unanswered questions from residents, the live streaming event to the Katherine Times website and Facebook page will cater for people still desperate for information about the safety of the town’s water.
The live stream will coincide with the Department of Defence’s presentations which are due to begin half an hour into each sessions, about 1.30pm today in the first session.
There is interest in the Katherine sessions from across the country because of the discovery in chemical contamination adjacent to 12 other RAAF bases.
Defence has scheduled two Community “walk in information sessions” in Katherine today following the discovery of chemical contamination near the Tindal RAAF Base and in the town’s water supply.
The Defence Department said the purpose of these sessions is to provide local residents and business owners with an opportunity to discuss the planned environmental investigation into per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) on and in the vicinity of, RAAF Base Tindal.
“Defence has been proactive in initiating an environmental program to investigate the nature and extent of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), on and in the vicinity of selected Defence properties around Australia.”
The sessions will be held from 1-3pm and 5-7pm at the Knotts Crossing Resort, Corner Giles and Cameron streets.
Any questions about the community information sessions or the investigation, contact 1800 365 414 or email PFASDefenceCoordination@golder.com.au.
