Dannevirke Public Water Meeting

7 December 2022 Dannevirke  Public Water Meetings being held

On Wednesday 7 December, Council is holding two Public Water Meetings concerning the Dannevirke Water Supply.  Both are being held at the Dannevirke Christian Fellowship Hub (the Hub).  The first meeting is from 1 – 3pm and the other is being held 7 – 9 pm and is open to all to attend.

We all know that the Dannevirke water supply has had challenges, starting with a leak, the subsequent repair of the dam followed by a hard summer, and of course, water restrictions put in place to conserve the water.

A subsequent suspected leak prompted Council to engage with Tonkin and Taylor, leading water management specialists, to investigate the dam and provide recommendations on the best way to move forward with repairs and continued water supply.

Council would like to inform the public of what the initial challenges were, what has gone on in support of a solution, where Council is at now and what the future looks like as we move towards summer.

The Mayor and key infrastructure personnel will be in attendance talking about the various topics and there will, of course, be a Question and Answer session during each meeting.
