Flush your taps
Research carried out by the Institute of
Environmental Science and the Ministry of
Health has shown some New Zealand water
supplies contain minute traces of lead. These
traces are near to or sometimes exceed
maximum acceptable levels specified in the
New Zealand Drinking Water Standards.
Traces of metals, in particular lead, are
of concern because over time they pose a
potential health risk, especially if consumed
The lead does not come from the water
supply, but from metals in some household
fittings that may be dissolved into the water.
The amount of lead that will dissolve from
a fitting depends on the type of water, water
temperature, composition of the plumbing
fittings and how long the water has been in
contact with it.
New Zealand waters are of very good quality
and contain little dissolved substances and
that contributes to their plumbosolvency
(the ability of the water to dissolve the lead).
The Ministry of Health recommends people
do not drink the first mugful of water if their
tap has not been used for several hours
overnight, for instance.
Instead, run the tap for a couple of seconds
to flush away any water contaminants.

Health website, www.moh.govt.nz
