Newcastle Herald: Residents thirsty for pollution reports BY MATTHEW KELLY, 09 Oct, 2010 04:00 AM
Scientists are investigating potential coal mining dust contamination of drinking water in the Gloucester Valley.

A team of Macquarie University researchers and students took tap-water samples from 101 tank water dependent properties last week.

The samples are being analysed for heavy metals such as lead and cadmium.

The Gloucester Environment Group initiated the project after community concerns about the health impacts of mining in the Gloucester Valley.
