Asbestos Management at Water Tower

The Hilbre Avenue water treatment site was recently assessed by specialist company K2 Environmental Ltd for asbestos as part of the Council’s health and safety process to develop a asbestos management plans for all our buildings. 

The assessment found some contamination of the soil immediately surrounding the reservoir, potentially caused by rainfall runoff from the roof of the reservoir. 

The Council has been advised there is unlikely to be a risk to neighbouring properties as potential health problems only occur when asbestos fibres are airborne. 

The reservoir is due to be replaced in approximately 2 years’ time, however, in the interim the following steps will be taken to minimise any risk:

  • The immediate area surrounding the reservoir will be fenced and warning signs put in place
  • The grass will not be mowed until the reservoir is replaced, which is planned to occur in  two years’ time
  • Anyone entering the site, including our staff, will be required to wear appropriate protective clothing.

Please contact 3 Waters Asset Manager Matt Bayliss, phone 209 0330, if you have any questions.


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.
