Carterton District Council announced on Sunday morning that it is confident boil water notices will be lifted next week but remains vigilant as the advisory stays in effect until further notice.

Businesses and urban residents that are connected to the town water supply are advised to continue boiling all water before using it for drinking, cooking or preparation, juices, ice, washing fruit and vegetables, making baby formula or brushing teeth.

Thursday provided space to narrow down the potential source after low-levels of E.coli was identified at two bores on March 12.


“The Council requests people to remain vigilant while it goes through the process of a methodical tracking down of the potential source,” a statement wrote.

Flushing of the pipe system and an increase of chlorination levels were introduced. Multiple sites were retested as a precaution to the ongoing investigation.

Anyone who gets diarrhoea, vomiting and/or a fever, is asked to seek advice from their doctor or contact Healthline on 0800 611 116.
