Weather Warning for Waitomo
Waitomo District is expecting a significant amount of rainfall over the next few days. Once again, this will likely have a major impact on our roads and farmland. We ask residents to please take caution and do not venture out into the weather if you do not need to. And if possible, move stock to higher ground.
Surface flooding and excess water may also slow the drainage of the stormwater and wastewater network. We are not expecting any significant impact to the network, water will just take a little longer to drain.
We will keep you updated as information comes to hand.
Stay safe.

Ministry of Health Advice - Plumbosolvency

Sometimes small traces of metal can accumulate in plumbing fittings. Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you discard a mugful of water from your tap each morning before use, to remove any metals that may have dissolved from plumbing fittings. This simple tip is recommended for all households (both public and private water supplies).
