ADF ships drinking water to Katherine properties affected by contamination

More than 40 properties around an Air Force base near Katherine are being supplied with drinking water by the Defense Department, as residents express shock at discovering they have been drinking from a contaminated supply.

The contamination has been linked to chemicals in firefighting foams previously used at RAAF Base Tindal and at other Defense sites, civil airports and fire stations around Australia.
