In Brief BOIL WATER NOTICE A precautionary boil water notice in place for properties connected to the Arthur’s Pass water supply may be lifted today or later in the week, depending on test results, a district council spokeswoman said. The notice was put in place on Thursday. No E. coli had been detected but bad weather had increased the water’s turbidity, meaning the district council could not guarantee it was safe to drink. When a boil water notice is in place, the Ministry of Health advises that people should boil or treat all water from taps before drinking, brushing teeth or using it in food preparation. Water used to make ice should also be boiled before freezing. People will need to continue to boil water until they are informed that the notice has been lifted. SUBDIVISION APPLICATION The district council has received an application to subdivide a farm on Hudsons Rd, near Lincoln, for future residential use.
