KIDtober can be thirsty work, remember, in Port Pirie drink tap water

Be lead-aware this KIDtober

Our bodies are made up of 50-60% water.  That’s a lot of water.  And even when your kids aren’t running around, their bodies are using it up.  For their bodies and brains to work well – and for them to think clearly – the water needs to be replaced.

In Port Pirie ‘mains’ tap water is the best choice for preparing food and drinks including formula or for cooking.  Lead dust collects on your roof and is washed into your rainwater tank when it rains.  Boiling rainwater will not get rid of lead, it only concentrates it.
