|One of the signs warning of a sewage spill near the Lachlan|
Creek in New Norfolk.
Signs were erected this afternoon, warning against any contact with contaminated water at the garden.
The garden, on riverflats off The Avenue at Willow Court, is a project of the Derwent Valley Community House, providing an opportunity for people to grow their own vegetables or to pick and purchase produce from the garden.

TasWater's warning signs in the area say that a sewer spill has occurred and people should avoid any contact with the water lying on the ground in the area. New Norfolk's Bicentennial Walking Track passes through this area.
More information is being sought by the Derwent Valley Council and the Derwent Valley Community House. At the time of writing TasWater has not published any advice about this incident on its website.
