Ashburton District Council wishes to advise that a precautionary boil water notice is now in place for the Montalto water supply.

Monitoring equipment at the Montalto treatment plant has detected high turbidity – otherwise described as murkiness - in the water supply, which is likely caused by the high rainfall currently being experienced.

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

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