Boil Water Notice in Place for Long
Ruapehu District Council (RDC) is leaving
the boil water notice in place for Taumarunui over the long
weekend to allow through testing of the newly installed
RDC had hoped to be able to lift the boiled
water notice by today (Fri 30 May).
RDC Chief Executive,
Peter Till, said that the new parts have been installed and
Council’s contractor Veolia Water has been running
continuous tests on it.
“With the recent bad weather and
the Whanganui River running high and dirty we want to ensure
that the filter can cope with these conditions before
lifting the boil water notice.”
“Council would like to
thank everyone who has been affected by this event for their
patience and understanding,” he said.
“We are working
as quickly as we can but cannot afford to take risks with
the community’s health.”
“We ask that the Taumarunui
community is patient for just a few more days until we can
confidently lift the boiled water

It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.
What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
