The Garden Island - - Morning Briefing -

HAENA – The Depart­ment of Wa­ter has is­sued a do not drink ad­vi­sory and con­ser­va­tion no­tice for res­i­dents in Wainiha and Haena.

DOW has ac­ti­vated gen­er­a­tors in the area al­low­ing pump sta­tions to be­gin fill­ing the stor­age tank sites, un­til elec­tri­cal power ser­vices can be re­stored.

As this oc­curs, wa­ter ser­vices may be slowly re­stored to cus­tomers in Wainiha and Haena, how­ever due to weather-af­fected ar­eas that re­main in­ac­ces­si­ble, DOW is not able to as­sess all dam­age or ex­po­sure to the ser­vice lines in the sys­tem, and there­fore res­i­dents are ad­vised not to drink or cook with tap wa­ter, as a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure, un­til fur­ther no­tice.

Ad­di­tion­ally, a con­ser­va­tion no­tice has also been is­sued for cus­tomers that have be­gun to re­ceive wa­ter from the Wainiha – Haena sys­tem.
