Summer Water Restrictions Lifted

The Clutha District Council advises that due to the onset of cooler temperatures, the normal 'Stage One - Summer Mode' water restrictions which had been in place for the entire district will be lifted from midnight Sunday 15th March 2015.

Council will look at re-establishing these seasonal restrictions if weather conditions demand again next summer.

Water consumers should continue to avoid wastage of water at all times, as there is a cost involved to treat and supply this water even when there is no shortage.

Public Health Notice - 19 December 2014

Some plumbing fittings have the potential to allow minute traces of metals to accumulate in water standing in the fittings for several hours.

Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a cup-full of water from your drinking-water tap each morning before use to remove any metals that may have dissolved from the plumbing fittings.

We are recommending this simple precaution for all households, including those on public and private water supplies.
