 Otama Rural Water Scheme Boil Water Notice

A permanent boil water notice was today (Friday 13 October) put in place for the Otama Rural Water Scheme.

The notice is the result of a catchment assessment, which indicated a very high risk of microbiological contamination. It is important to note that the Council's weekly water quality testing for the scheme has not returned a positive for e-coli or any other form of contamination.

Go to our Otama scheme page for more details.


Road Closure - River Street, Gore

River Street will be closed between Bury Street and Blue Sky Meats from 1 September until December. The closure is to allow contractors to lay utilities infrastructure for the Mataura Valley Milk plant.


Flush Water Before Drinking

The Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mugful of water from your drinking water tap each morning, before use, to remove any traces of metals from the plumbing fittings that may have dissolved. This simple precaution is recommended for all households in the District, whether on public or private water supplies, as trace metals in water can pose a small risk to your health.
