Reported Water Pollution No Threat to Billing Ian Coomber, VBNOA Chairman
You may have read in the press that some areas of Northampton are receiving tap water which is contaminated with a virus. We have contacted Billing Aquadrome management who are recommending that the piped water on the site is NOT used for drinking until health checks have been carried out by the water company. Piped water on the site is perfectly safe for showers etc and there is no threat from the lakes or river water in the area.
Billing is laying on extra stocks of bottled water for sale and visitors are being advised to bring extra supplies should the problem continue.
There is no question of our event being cancelled and hopefully normal supplies of safe drinking water to Northampton and the Billing site will be resumed well before our visit
