The new Dry Season has begun as the last one ended with the Government sitting on Darwin Harbour water testing results.

Shadow Environment Minister Peter Chandler said the tests, conducted last Tuesday, still haven’t been posted on the Health Department’s beach water quality web-site.

“It should take about three days from the time the water is tested to the results being available.” Mr. Chandler said.

“If the Government has a good reason for not having posted the results, they should make it known.”

“Keeping the results suppressed from participants in the Arafura Games does not constitute a good reason.” Mr. Chandler said.
