Buller District Council


18th April, 2020

Consumers on the Punakaiki Water Supply are advised that a Boil Water Notice is in effect immediately due to the need to introduce raw water into the reticulation. This Boil Water Notice replaces the Precautionary Boil Water Notice that was issued to the supply at the beginning of the Covid-19 Level 4 Lockdown.

An intermittent ability to produce treated water this week due to weather events, coupled with a large water leak in Mabel Street, has resulted in the treated water reservoirs 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
