Safe to drink

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Some res­i­dents in cen­tral and west Auck­land no­ticed the taste and smell of their tap wa­ter was a lit­tle off last week. Water­care fielded sev­eral com­plaints but has as­sured the Auck­land Re­gional Pub­lic Health Ser­vice that the wa­ter is safe to drink. Hot tem­per­a­tures from the pre­vi­ous weekend trig­gered a mi­nor al­gal bloom in the Lower Ni­ho­tupu stor­age dam which is re­spon­si­ble for much of the wa­ter sup­ply. Those who com­plained re­ceived bot­tled wa­ter from Water­care. About 950 bot­tles were de­liv­ered to 405 prop­er­ties through­out the week.
