Montalto precautionary boil water notice lifted

​Ashburton District Council has today lifted the precautionary boil water notice in place for Montalto, effective immediately. 

Residents connected to this scheme are advised they are safe to consume the water as normal, after monitoring equipment detected high levels of turbidity (cloudiness) in the supply on 6 January.

Turbidity lowers the effectiveness of water treatment equipment, and Council issued the notice as a precautionary measure. ​

Montalto was the last remaining water scheme to be on a precautionary boil water notice, after Mt Somers and Methven were lifted off their notices on the 15 and 16 January, respectively.
