Boil water notice update
Boil water notices in place for the Rolleston and Sheffield/
Waddington water supplies have now been lifted.
A precautionary boil water notice for the Rolleston water supply was issued
on Sunday, 12 May, when a test result was returned indicating that E.coli
was present, at levels above the recommended level, in one bore which
feeds into the town supply.
Several days of water test results have now been received which indicate
that no trace of E.coli is present in the water and the water is safe to drink.
The Council's Water Asset Manager, Murray England, says there are a
number of reasons why water testing could have returned a positive test on
12 May, and they could include a lab error, a sampling error, contamination
of ground water, or backflow contamination. The Council will be carrying
out an investigation to look at why the positive test result was returned.
"When the Council received the positive test result we decided to issue a
boil water notice to avoid the risk of anyone becoming sick," he says. "We
want to thank Rolleston residents for their help in alerting the community to
the boil water notice when it was issued. We also appreciate the patience
residents have shown while the notice has been in place."
The boil water notice for the Sheffield/ Waddington water supply has now
Slowly but surely Selwyn
District's 19 cemeteries are
being returned to their pre-
Greendale, one of the worst
affected, was the first to have
its damaged headstones and
Early this year repairs began
in Springston where 170
headstones needed repair.
The work there has almost been
completed and headstone repair
work will resume in the spring
at Dunsandel once the ground
has dried out.
Amy Georgina Lill's headstone
in the Dunsandel Cemetery
awaits restoration, due to be
carried out later this year.
As daylight saving is no longer upon us,
the Council needs to think about the health
and safety of everyone using our cemeteries
during the darker winter hours.
We would like to make the latest time to
book a burial (excluding ashes) at 3.30pm.
Normal hours will resume when daylight
saving begins at the end of September.
