Boil Water Notice – Edendale

Current location in the site

Residents on the Edendale Water Supply are advised to begin boiling water.

A boil water notice has been issued by Selwyn District Council after test results showed that E. coli levels were above recommended levels, as a result of recent weather conditions.

E.coli is an organism which can cause health issues. If you or your family show any symptoms of sickness, including vomiting and diarrhea, please visit your doctor as soon as you are able to.

When a boil water notice is in place, the Ministry of Health advises that people should boil or treat all water from taps before drinking, brushing teeth or using it in food preparation. In addition, water used to make ice should also be boiled before freezing.

  • Bringing water to the boil is sufficient to kill all bugs (water does not require prolonged boiling). Water needs to be boiled even if the smell or taste of chlorine is present. If you cannot boil water, treat it by adding 1 teaspoon of household bleach per 10 litres of water and leave for 30 minutes
  • During boil water notices, employers should also make sure their staff are only consuming boiled or bottled water at work.
    You will need to continue to boil your water until you are notified that the boil water notice is lifted. It is likely to be in place for several days.

The Council will continue to monitor the intake and reticulation system and keep residents informed of any updates.
