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.
