Dear SA Office of the Minister for Environment and Water,

I would like to know if the water in South Australia has been tampered with unnecessarily. Chemicals that are not needed added? And who would do this? Or is it indeed safe and pure as claimed? Thankyou, I appreciate your time.

Yours faithfully,

Victoria Jewitt.
