Darfield Water Supply Update
Further work to improve the quality and reliability of the water
supply in Darfield will soon get underway.
Construction of a reservoir and pump station north of Darfield
to service the town will start in the middle of this year and be
finished late this year or early next year. The reservoir will
allow entrained (trapped) air to be released from the water.
This will improve the problems some households experience
with air locks occurring in their household plumbing.
The new pump station and reservoir will help to better manage
current and future peak demand as the population of Darfield
grows. A second deep bore to service Darfield will also be
developed and will be sited close to the current bore.
The Council's Asset Manager -- Water Services, Murray England
says that the project is good news for Darfield residents. "Once it has been completed it
will provide Darfield with an alternate groundwater source and will avoid the need to use
the Waimakariri supply as a backup."
Construction of the second bore will start in late April, and will take around two months.
Shortly after construction begins the town's water supply will revert back to the Waimakariri
river source temporarily. This is a precautionary measure as the bore drilling could affect
the water quality of the existing bore. Once the new bore is completed, the existing bore
source will be used again to service the township.
Mr England says the Waimakariri river supply source water will be safe for residents to
drink as it will be chlorinated. "Chlorination is used in many water supplies throughout
New Zealand as a water treatment method which successfully kills harmful bacteria and
Before 2011 chlorinated water from the Waimakariri River was used as the town's main
water supply and was safely used by residents as a drinking water source. Mr England says
the Council has reviewed the issues that caused inadequate chlorination of the water supply
in July/August last year and has taken steps to ensure that this problem does not affect the
town's water supply again.
Additional monitoring of the supply and treatment system will be undertaken
while the river source is in use to ensure that the water supplied is safe for use.
Information about this project along with an update about when the water supply will revert
back to the Waimakariri River source will be posted online at Selwyn.govt.nz.
Anyone with questions about this project should phone the Council on 03 318 8338.
