Reminder to Residents - Drinking Water

9 Jan 2014, 8:48 AM

Some plumbing fittings have the potential to allow minute traces of metals to accumulate in water standing in the fittings for several hours.

Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mugful of water, from your drinking water tap each morning before use to remove any metals that may have dissolved from the plumbing fittings.

In accordance with Ministry of Health recommendations, Waitomo District Council is issuing this reminder to all households, including those on public and private water supplies.
