Advisory from Otago Regional Council: Lake Waihola health warning lifted

 The two-week old health warning in place at Lake Waihola where the re-occurrence of potentially toxic cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) was of concern, has now been lifted and the lake is again safe for public use.

 Three consecutive samples of water from the lake (taken between 6 and 13 March) revealed low biovolumes of cyanobacteria levels, meaning the health warning could be lifted. The Otago Regional Council is today removing warning signs from the lake shore.

ORC appreciates the patience and co-operation of members of the public who heeded the warning and kept their dogs out of the water. 

For more information please contact:

 Standard ‘Summer Mode’ water restrictions lifted

Clutha District Council advises residents that  the normal Stage One Summer Mode water restrictions for the entire district are no longer in force, due to the onset of cooler temperatures.

Council will look at re-establishing these seasonal restrictions  next summer.

In the meantime, Council asks customers to avoid wasting water at all times, as there is a cost involved to treat and supply this water even when there is no shortage.

Tips for conserving water include:

•             Report water leaks in council pipes and fittings to your nearest council office, or call 0800 801 350.

•             Fix drips and leaks in your own plumbing and outdoor troughs etc.

•             Water the garden in the early morning or evening, and only as necessary.

•             Don’t leave water running unnecessarily.

•             Showers are more economical than baths.

•             Use a bucket to wash the car.

NOTICE OF BRIDGE CLOSURE: MacLennan Bridge

24 February Update:

​The bridge was closed to traffic on 7 February for strengthening work. Since then, contractors have put up scaffolding, removed part of the decking and railing system, cleaned two piers and are starting to replace removed decking as seen in the photo. The project does involve some work below the bridge and products such as epoxy, which can take time to set up or dry before they can proceed with other works. The contractor has assured Council they are doing everything they can to get the bridge open as quickly as possible. Thank you again for your patience during this period.

MacLennan Road Bridge

We are programmed to begin repair work on the MacLennan Road Bridge commencing on Tuesday 7th February 2017.

Vehicle Access: During the closure of the MacLennan Road Bridge, Temporary Traffic Management will be in place, in the form of a detour. The temporary detour will be via Centre Road, Dewe Road, Mouats Saddle Road and Tahakopa Road, as shown on the Detour Map.

We anticipate the closure will be for approximately 10 weeks. The bridge will be temporarily opened with speed restriction on 4 March 2017 to help facilitate the flow of traffic for the Papatowai Challenge.

Your co-operation and patience will help us get the job done as quickly as possible.

Contacts: If you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to the Foreman on site of ring Contract Engineer - Thomas Morgan on 03 211 1000 or 0275 393 675.
