Adailiya station’s water suitable for drinking: EPA

KUWAIT: The water produced by the Al-Adailiya station is drinkable and suitable for human consumption, said the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) yesterday, refuting online news claims of contamination. A press release by the EPA revealed that the source of the news in regards to contamination was based in outdated information from 1984. Since then, measures were undertaken to bring the quality level to international standards with latest data in 2017-2018 pointing to the opposite of the current online claims. The EPA commended the efforts by the Ministry of Water and Electricity, which always released transparent and trusted information to the public. – KUNA
