Boil water notice lifted for Pirinoa (05 March 2020)

We have been testing the water every day and waiting for three consecutive clear test results and certainty that the water is safe to drink.

Yesterday, in consultation with Regional Public Health, we lifted the boil water notice, meaning tap water is now safe to drink without having to be boiled.

Although the boil water notice has been lifted we will continue with more regular testing of the supply.

Current watering restrictions

South Wairarapa has been following alternate day watering - even numbered properties on even numbered dates and odd numbered properties on odd numbered dates. Updates on restrictions in place can be found below.

No further restrictions are currently in place, however the village is advised to conserve water following temporary loss of water supply on Thursday 28 November due to customer demand exceeding available water supply.
