Vogeltown School kids are water and Zero Waste heroes who have been recycling bottles by using them to plant seeds.
Update: 3pm, Wednesday, February 28
- The first water samples sent to Wellington for testing have come back clear.
- But please be patient and continue to boil water.
- Further samples are still in Wellington being tested. It can take up to four days to get results.
- It may take about a week before we can be 100 per cent sure the water is safe and we can lift the boil notice.
- We are testing to make sure we have enough chlorine in our water and to make sure there is no bacteria in the water.
- We have increased our flushing work and the Fire Service and NPDC volunteers are assisting.
- Please let us know if you notice anything unusual with your water while we continue to test and flush the system.
- Two water tankers were moved to the TSB Stadium carpark (beside the racecourse) and the clubrooms at Ngamotu Domain (off Pioneer Road) on Tuesday.
- The move will give residents on the Western side of the city easier access to drinking water if it is required.
- The water tankers will remain in place until the boil water notice is lifted.
- Thanks to everyone for your continued patience and understanding as we work to get water back to normal.
