Wild De­scent

Or­gan­is­ers of the Wild De­scent kayak race on the Clutha River had to post­pone the event last week un­til April be­cause of safety con­cerns. High river lev­els and rain will mean the race will be moved to April 24 to 27.

Wa­ter cleared

Hawea res­i­dents no longer need to boil their drink­ing wa­ter. Sam­ples of treated wa­ter in the retic­u­lated sup­ply were clear of e-coli for three days, the pe­riod re­quired to de­clare the sup­ply safe to drink with­out boil­ing. Chlo­ri­na­tion con­tin­ued as a pre­cau­tion be­cause e-coli was still be­ing de­tected in daily sam­ples of un­treated lake wa­ter, the Queen­stown Lakes Dis­trict Coun­cil said.
