Following a chlorination dosing fault, the Ruamahanga Water Treatment Plant is back in operation and bulk water tankers are refilling the reservoir.
The tankers will be stood down at 10pm (6 March), when the water level of the reservoir will be sufficient to cover tomorrow morning’s peak demand.
The water treatment plant’s chlorination system is being monitored and we will provide another update tomorrow morning (Sunday).
