The district council has confirmed it will chlorinate the Sheffield-Waddington and Malvern Hills Hartleys Rd water supplies in July and August. Malvern Hills Hartleys Rd supplies Coalgate, Glentunnel and Whitecliffs. The district council’s water services asset manager Murray England told Selwyn Times pipe breaks, backflow, illegal connections and reservoir failures in the supplies had led to the chlorination. He said the district council has written to users of both schemes informing them of their intention to permanently chlorinate the water supplies. •Turn to page 4 Need water?
