Punakaiki Water Supply- Boil Water Notice

28th March, 2018

Consumers on the Punakaiki water supply are advised that a precautionary boiled water notice is in effect immediately due to the need to introduce raw water to the reservoir tanks.

High turbidity and an electrical fault at the treatment plant has resulted in the treated water reservoir becoming very low. Raw water has been introduced to ensure continuity of supply for consumers.

Consumers are advised to boil all drinking water and water used for food preparation until further notice.

Consumers will be advised when the reservoir levels have recovered, and the Treatment Plant is back to full treatment. Council apologises for any inconvenience to consumers.
