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.
