Precautionary boil water notice issued

Tuesday 19 September, 2017

Ashburton District Council wishes to advise that a precautionary boil water notice has now been issued for the Montalto and Mt Somers water supplies.

Monitoring equipment at both treatment plants have detected high turbidity – otherwise described as cloudiness - in the water supplies, which is likely caused by the rainfall currently being experienced.

The treatment plant equipment at both facilities are operating normally but are less effective during periods of high turbidity and as a precautionary measure, Council is requesting that all residents on the Montalto and Mt Somers water schemes to boil their drinking water and water used in food preparation.

The precautionary boil water notices will remain in place until further advised by Council.
