Water

Updated 20 June 2017: Glenkenich Rural Water Scheme - Conserve Water Notice.

The below notice is no longer in force. Thanks for your cooperation.

Could all users on the Glenkenich Rural Water Scheme please conserve their water use for the next three days. Recent heavy rain has caused dirty river conditions in the Pomahaka. This has prevented us pumping water from the treatment plant to the reservoir, meaning the reservoir is now empty.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation, ring 0800 801 350 with any queries and please share this info with other users on the Scheme.
