Waiau Township -TEMPORARY BOIL WATER NOTICE

Due to the detection of Ecoli in recent water samples for the Waiau Township Water Scheme, Hurunui District Council has issued this precautionary temporary boil water notice. Drinking contaminated water has the potential to cause illness, including vomiting and diarrhoea.

With immediate effect all drinking water, including water used for oral hygiene and food preparation should be boiled for at least 1 minute before consumption. Water needs to be boiled until further notice and will be monitored closely until we have 3 consecutive clear test results.
