Red Zone Residents Urged to Follow Existing Advice

BY TARA LOUIS

The Hunter's Parliamentary Secretary is advising residents in the Williamtown contamination zone to continue to follow EPA advice on PFAS exposure.

It comes following the release of the Australian Government's Expert Health Panel report last Monday which denied a direct link between PFAS exposure and Cancer.

The health risks cannot however be ruled out so EPA advice on what to consume and drink shouldn't be ignored.

"We urge people to continue to adopt those precautionary approaches reccomended by NSW EPA," Scot MacDonald said.

He said the State Government have been listening to and supporting residents.

"The State MPs and local governments disseminate information as we get it.

"We will be there to support them however we can."
