Eketahuna and Dannevirke Boil Water Notices Lifted

Dannevirke Water Supply, Mandatory Boil Water Notice lifted, 01 April 2022

The Dannevirke mandatory boil water notice has been lifted today, 01 April.

Three consecutive days of compliant water quality tests have been conducted, all of which met NZ Drinking Water Standard compliance.

The drinking water tanker located on the corner of Allardice and Denmark Streets will be moved in due course.

Residents are thanked for their patience and understanding of the situation.  We would like to remind Dannevirke residents that Dannevirke still has a total outdoor ban on water use and we urge everyone to remain water wise.

Eketāhuna Water Supply, Precautionary Boil Water Notice Lifted, 01 April 2022

Tararua District Council would like to advise that the boil water notice for the Eketāhuna supply has now been lifted. Chlorine levels are now at the required level for customer use and Council has received three clear lab samples confirming there is no E. coli present in the reticulation.

The precautionary notice was issued on 23 March 2022 due to continuous heavy rain causing very turbid source water from the Makakahi River.

Council would like to extend a sincere thank you to all of the residents in Eketāhuna for your cooperation and patience while this issue was resolved and the request to conserve water was in place. Eketāhuna residents can now use their water as normal. Council would also like to thank the Ministry of Health for their support and advice during this time.
