Toowoomba council sues federal government over Oakey contamination

Toowoomba Regional Council is suing the federal government for negligence over the management of land contaminated by fire fighting foam at Oakey.
Council claims that as a result of Defence Force Base actions the value of its infrastructure has diminished and it will have to spend at least $3 million to secure Oakey's water supply.
They are also accusing the government of knowing about the issues with PFAS since 1977.
