We are building a manganese reduction plant to improve the quality of Martinborough’s water by removing excess manganese and iron from the water. This will allow permanent chlorination of the Martinborough town water supply. The current chlorination arrangements are temporary because the town is being supplied by only one bore, the one with the lowest levels of manganese.

Effectively removing the manganese from the town water supply and being able to return to supplying water from more than one bore is the best course of action to ensure clean, clear, safe and secure water for the town.

Keep up to date with the progress of the manganese reduction plant here.
