NEW public toilet blocks were placed around the District Council of Karoonda East Murray area on Tuesday, October 13.

However, they are not ready for use just yet.

The Karoonda East Murray council took to social media to mark the delivery of the new toilets to the Wanbi playground, the Karoonda Cemetery and at Pioneer Park.

"The team are absolutely pooped (pun intended) after a big day out in the field," the post said on Tuesday.

"You may have noticed some new toilet blocks around the district today ... we had three disabled/unisex public toilets delivered to the Wanbi playground, Karoonda Cemetery and Pioneer Park.

"The toilets are out of order for the moment until they are connected, however we will keep you updated on when they are ready to use."

The toilets were funded through the Federal Government's Drought Communities and Community Infrastructure Program.

The Karoonda East Murray Council discussed the communities wishes for the new public toilets at Karoonda's cemetery, Pioneer Park and Wanbi at its January meeting.
