BOIL WATER NOTICE - MARTINBOROUGH 1 FEBRUARY 2019

NOTICE TO HOUSEHOLDERS

WATER SUPPLY - MARTINBOROUGH

Users of the Martinborough Township water supply are advised that E.Coli has been detected in the township. While the results were very low, in consultation with Regional Public Health, a Boil Water notice has been issued for the supply.

BOIL WATER

Water for drinking, food preparation and oral hygiene (brushing teeth) should be boiled to ensure the water is safe for consumption.

Council will be clearing pipelines of water and carrying out further investigations. Council will also be testing the supply to identify the source of the contamination and advise when the boiling of water is no longer necessary.

Please note the boil water notice also includes ice that has been made recently with water from the Martinborough Town Supply.

If you have any queries, please contact SWDC on 06 30 69611.
