DCC has issued a boil water notice

This item was published on 15 Aug 2017.

All residents and businesses in the following areas are advised to boil all drinking water until further notice.

This is due to an issue with water quality and is isolated to the north end of the city. We are working to resolve this and will keep you advised.

This applies to the CBD, North Dunedin, Leith Valley, Woodhaugh, the Warehouse Precinct and anything in the central city between the town belt and the harbour.

  • Please boil ALL drinking water.
  • Zips do not boil water sufficiently, water needs to be through a rolling boil for at least one minute and filtered water should also be boiled for at least one minute.
  • If you’re in an affected area please flush run your taps for 10-15 minutes. This will flush the water and will help with the cleaning process.
  • If you have a water tank please empty it so it can be refilled with clean water.
  • If you are in an affected area and have water that you have drawn from the tap since yesterday, please tip it out and do not drink it.
  • As a precaution please use hand sanitizer after washing your hands.
  • We are working on providing water tankers so there is a supply available. We will let you know where these will be and when.
