Awatere Water Scheme (Birch) - Water Quality Information - 22 April 2014
Due to increased turbidity from the Easter storm the MIOX treatment has been turned off. What does this mean for you?
Go to Awatere Water Scheme alert for more details.
The Awatere Settlers' Association Water Sub-Committee and MDC investigated the use of a MIOX water treatment system for the Awatere Water Supply. MIOX was the most economic option at the time for the Awatere - providing a partial treatment option at a relatively low cost, and offering the possibility of complementing full treatment should the Government retain the current legislation making compliance with the Drinking-water Standards for NZ mandatory from 1 July 2014.
