Reefton Water Supply- Boil Water Notice LIFTED

27th January, 2020

Council wishes to advise that water testing undertaken on the Reefton Water Supply has determined that the water is treated sufficiently and is fully compliant.

Therefore the BOIL WATER NOTICE IS LIFTED for the Reefton Water Supply and normal water use may resume.

Council appreciates the patience and cooperation of consumers during this time.


Important Note: Reefton has not switched over to a chlorinated water supply.

The supply reservoir was temporarily (shock) dosed with a residual disinfectant (chlorine) in order sterilise any residual bacteria and pathogens. This is standard practice and an appropriate response to ensure the water is safe for drinking, as confirmed by the three “all clear” test results which allowed us to lift the BWN today.
