  • 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.
