Punakaiki Water Supply – Boiled Water Notice

25th March, 2015

Consumers on the Punakaiki Water Supply are advised that a boiled water notice is in effect from Thursday 26 March 2015. This is due to a slip above the intake causing high levels of turbidity (colour particles) affecting the filtration and UV systems.

The intake has been cleared but it may take some time for higher quality water to be produced and flow through to the reticulation.

Consumers will be required to boil all drinking water and water used for food preparation until further notice.

Consumers will be advised when the water is back to full treatment. Council apologises for any inconvenience to consumers.
