Precautionary boil water notice issued for Methven/Springfield

Published: 28 June 2021

The Ashburton District Council has again issued a precautionary boil water notice for the Methven/Springfield water supply, effective immediately.

The recent May wet-weather event has significantly impacted how the Methven / Springfield gallery responds to even small amounts of rainfall.

Residents connected to this scheme are advised to boil their drinking water, water used in food preparation and for hygiene purposes for at least one minutes before consumption.

Residents wishing to fill containers with safe water can do so from the potable water tap at the Methven Recycling Drop off Centre, located on Methven Chertsey Road, opposite the Rugby Grounds.

The precautionary boil water notice will remain in place until further advised, and the Council will continue to monitor the scheme.
