Precautionary Boil Water Notice for Levin – Lifted

Precautionary Boil Water Notice for Levin – Lifted

The Precautionary Boil Water Notice for the Levin water supply, issued on Friday night, has now been LIFTED.  We sincerely thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

The system is recovering and returning to normal. We currently have over 50% storage and this is gradually increasing. The water is clean and is treated, and there are no issues. Based on this, we can lift the precautionary boil water notice.

We appreciate that the notice would have caused some inconvenience and even frustration, however our actions are guided by the need to be always on the safe side. We take no chances when it comes to the quality of the water that is being sent out to the community. The uncertainty around the dirty status of the river required that we stay on the side of caution.

This is one of the reasons why we are spending over $3 million at the Levin Water Treatment Plant and when that upgrade is complete, the plant will be more resilient.
