A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

I hope you all enjoyed a nice eventful Western Australia Day the other day. The day sure started nice and sunny.

Yes Winter is here but what lovely days we’re having. Don’t forget to keep hydrated even if you don’t feel thirsty on these cooler days.

Last month Jeremy got the Entrepreneur bug again after a 2 year permanent part time position servicing and helping maintain our client systems and became a business owner buying a Cheese business. You’ll see him at the markets! Good luck Jeremy and thank you for many years of experience in our industry.

Oh wow if you haven’t already experienced the fun, the glitz and the glamour of the newest amazingly sensational restaurant in Perth you must check in to www.hellohollywood.com.au and book in with a group. It’s absolutely fantastic, Erin and I went last Friday night. You can find them on Facebook too. Hello Hollywood.

Last month of the financial year is upon us once again. I always dread having to do stock-take, but we’ve had another good year and continued to grow creating a busy and fun environment to be in. So here’s Cheers Cheers to another rippa and Cheers Cheers as we look forward into a new financial year. All the best.

Keep hydrated and remember; If you’re not using a water filter your body is one!

Scientists find cocaine in UK's water

Cocaine use in the UK is now so widespread there are trace elements of the stimulant in the country's drinking water, according to a new report.

In a study assessing the dangers associated pharmaceutical contaminants in Britain's water, scientists found traces of the drug cocaine still present after the water had gone through an intensive purification process.

Experts from the Drinking Water Inspectorate found traces of the compound benzoylecgonine — the metabolised by product of cocaine and the same composite searched for in common urine-based drug tests.

Speaking with the UK's Sunday Times, Steve Rolls from the drug-policy thinktank Transform said the startling results were an indication of scale of the drug's use in the Britain. "We have the near highest level of cocaine use in western Europe," Mr Rolls told the newspaper.

Water facts

How wastewater is treated

1. When wastewater enters a plant, the debris and large objects are removed by passing the waste water through specially designed filter screens – this material is disposed of at approved landfill sites.

2. Wastewater is transferred into tanks where solid matter sinks to form sludge.

3. The wastewater flows on to stage three which involves biological treatment. Here, diffused air provides oxygen for the processes that break down and remove any organic pollutants.

4. Finally, the wastewater enters the settlement tanks where any remaining micro-organisms and sludge sink to the bottom. From here, the treated water can be returned to the environment safely. Most of the sludge produced is then digested and conditioned to create a stable material suitable for recycling for agricultural uses - this is called biosolids recycling.

After wastewater is treated it will either be: Returned to the marine environment via ocean outfalls. Recycled and re-used to irrigate open spaces and recreational areas, supplied to industry, used to replenish our groundwater and allowed to infiltrate back into the ground, or evaporate.

Health Tip

This month's health tip brought to you by "Richard Scholes" "The" water filter man

Digestive problems

Our digestive systems need a good amount of water to digest food properly. Often water can help cure stomach acid problems, and water along with fibre can cure constipation (often a result of dehydration).


Water is used by the body to help flush out toxins and waste products from the body.

Cancer risk

Related to the digestive system item above, drinking a healthy amount of water has also been found to reduce the risk of colon cancer by up to 45%. Drinking plenty of water can also reduce the risk of bladder cancer by up to 50%.
