Boil water notice
The water from Council’s reticulation in the Awatere and Seddon areas is not fully treated and does not meet the Drinking Water Standards for New Zealand 2005. This water may contain bacteria and/or protozoa that are detrimental to human health. All water used for drinking, food preparation or cleaning teeth should be boiled.
Marlborough District Council is currently working with the Nelson-Marlborough District Health Board towards lifting this permanent boil water notice as a MIOX treatment system was recently installed to meet the bacterial compliance requirements. It should be noted that this system will not inactivate protozoa.
Water treated with UV is available at the public tap on the school fence, Marama Road and Foster Street corner.
