💧We have recently identified issues relating to the use of Polyethylene (PE) pipes (or blue line poly) in potable water systems. These issues primarily relate to chemicals such as hydrocarbons or pesticides infiltrating the pipes.

If you're involved with the selection, storage, transportation or installation of PE pipes, please see our Industry Today blog for further information - http://www.qbcc.qld.gov.au/blog/industry-today/health-safety-concerns-relating-pe-pipes-or-%E2%80%98blue-line-poly%E2%80%99 | #WaterSupplySafety
