Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mugful of water from your drinking-water tap each morning before use to remove any metals that may have dissolved from the plumbing fittings. We are recommending this simple precaution for all households, including those on public and private water supplies.

As part of its Long-Term Plan, the Council is seeking feedback on whether to introduce chlorination to some community water supplies. Providing our communities with safe drinking water is a top priority for the Council. Across our 30 water supplies we currently use a variety of water treatment methods including secure ground water, Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection, selective abstraction and filtration, and chlorination. Following the Government’s inquiry into the Havelock North drinking water contamination, the Council has accelerated its programme to install UV treatment on secure bores. Consideration is also being given to chlorination, to provide additional protection. Chlorine provides residual treatment in the water reticulation system which UV does not provide, minimising the impact of any contamination which may enter the system. It is widely used in New Zealand and is already used on several supplies in Selwyn. Although the Government’s position on chlorination is not yet known, the Council is seeking comment from the community on options for introducing chlorination to community water supplies. These are: 1. Introduce chlorination for supplies which would receive greatest benefit, based on a risk assessment 2. Introduce chlorination for all Council water supplies 3. No additional chlorination The cost of water treatment is funded by the districtwide rate paid by all properties on a Council supply. The proposal to introduce limited chlorination, as in option 1, would increase the rate by $10.
