Tap Water Abbottsford, located in Abbottsford, New South Wales, is the third largest town in the Dukes of York area and is situated on the banks of the River Oxenham. The area around the banks of the river is full of farm and grazing land. The town draws a steady stream of tourists who come to see the natural beauty that Abbottsford offers. As a result, the quality of tap water in Abbottsford is quite good. However, it is not without its share of problems.

The name "Abbottsford" was selected after an old man called Doctor Robinson who lived in the area in the 1800s. He had a store where he sold fish, corn, cheese, eggs, hops, milk, vegetables, meats, and salt. It was said that the local population used this fish paste to make good tap water. The problem with this is that it contains a very high percentage of salt and consequently is unsanitary. It also contains a very high percentage of minerals.

Always take extra precautions, the water may be safe to drink when it leaves the sewage treatment plant but it may pick up pollutants during its way to your tap. We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.
