Tenterfield Shire Council is participating in the NSW Health SARS-CoV-2 Sewage Surveillance Research Project for the next 4 weeks and facilitate testing of sewage at both the Tenterfield and Urbenville Sewage Treatment plants.

The testing can help provide early warning of COVID-19 infections in the community.
