PRECAUTIONARY BOIL WATER NOTICE ISSUED FOR METHVEN & MT SOMERS:

Ashburton District Council has issued a precautionary boil water notice for Methven and Mt Somers.

Residents connected to these schemes should boil their drinking water, and water used in food preparation and for hygiene purposes for at least three minutes before consumption.

Although turbidity (cloudiness) levels have not risen in either schemes, it is predicted that they will later tonight when the rainfall is forecast to continue. Council is therefore issuing the notice as a precautionary measure in anticipation of the turbidity levels rising.

Turbidity lowers the effectiveness of the water treatment equipment.

A precautionary notice was also issued for Montalto earlier today due to turbidity being detected in the water.

Council will continue to monitor all three water supplies, and the notices will remain in place until further advised.
