Anton Vanderbyl, Main Arm

Given community concern over rising pollution levels from unnatural electro magnetic radiation like the 5G threat, something of which Council is well aware, it is disturbing to find our ‘sustainability’ Council itself is to become a major emitter. This is through the deployment of thousands of so called ‘smart’ water meters that are adding yet more bio-destructive microwave radiation, constituting in effect, a public nuisance.

All this to detect the odd water leak, apparently, and save you from suffering ‘bill shock’. Or is this more about data collection whereby every hour, every detail of your water use will be transmitted, stored, analysed and, as with ‘smart’ electricity meters, this data will be sold?

If you wish to preserve your privacy, and not risk your health to insidious long term low level exposure, you do have the right to refuse installation as Council cannot enter a private property used for residential purposes without your consent. By remaining silent you give consent.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
