Drinking water in Australia is a very big deal, and the state government is trying to tackle it.
The state government says it is looking at whether there is a need for the compulsory purchase of bottled water in the state.
It is not just water that needs to be purchased; other beverages need to be stored and used.
A spokesperson for the state Government said water is required to be treated to reduce odour and to prevent corrosion, which is why the state is introducing a mandatory purchase scheme for water.
The mandatory purchase of water is not the only thing the state has in place to make sure the public gets the best quality drinking water.
It also requires all businesses to have a water treatment system, and businesses to ensure their employees have drinking water filters and bottled water bottles.
The State Government is also looking at introducing a pilot program for home water treatment, which would also see businesses be able to buy water.
A water treatment pilot is one that requires the supply to be directly connected to a water supply, or a treatment plant, for treatment.
The pilot program is intended to test a pilot model and will begin in the coming months.
