Ashburton District Council advises that the precautionary boil water notice in place for the Montalto water supply has been lifted.

The quality of the water has now returned to normal, after monitoring equipment detected high levels of turbidity (often described as cloudiness) in the water on Friday 27 October.

High turbidity lowers the effectiveness of water treatment equipment, and the finding prompted Council to issue a precautionary boil water notice.

It is believed heavy rainfall caused the turbidity levels in the water supply to rise.
