Permanent Boil Water Notice Reminder Cannington-Motukaika Rural Water Scheme

Published: 16 Mar 2018

Dear Cannington-Motukaika Rural Water Scheme consumer

Due to a chlorination failure, Waimate District Council would like to remind those consumers on the Cannington-Motukaika Rural Water Scheme to continue boiling all drinking water.

Council recommends boiling all drinking water for at least a minute (a rolling boil) that is used for drinking, food preparation, and personal use such as cleaning teeth.

Please also inform all staff or tenants on your property of this reminder.

Council staff continue to work on upgrading the Cannington-Motukaika Rural Water Scheme to comply with the Drinking Water Standards for New Zealand.

For up to date information please see the Waimate District Council website: www.waimatedc.govt.nz . For questions, please phone 03-689-0000.
