An ongoing issue with the quality of Bombala's water supply is now reportedly being addressed by the Council.
Local residents and owners of the Cosmo Cafe, Arthur and Dina Dracopoulos, started a survey in July this year calling for community feedback on their own experiences with the town's water supply.
Their findings have shown at least 286 people are dissatisfied with the quality, prompting Arthur and Dina to take the results to Council's November meeting.
Dina says while the problems with varying taste, discolouration and smell are continuing, the meeting itself produced a positive outcome.
"Council did agree there's a big problem, so for me, that was a huge victory to get them to admit it and pledge to look into it," she said.
During the meeting it was confirmed that sand filters are currently used for the town's water supply, which can allow sediment to pass through into the tap water. While it's safe to drink, Council has reportedly acknowledged the water's sediment is at a reasonably high level.
The Dracopoulos' have now requested the findings of any future water test results be made available to the public.
"We're aiming at getting Council to communicate more effectively with the community, and keep us up-to-date on what's actually happening with the water," Dina said.
