Coromandel Town: boil water notice

Media Release: TCDC

In conjunction with The Medical Officer of Health, acting under the Health Act, 1956, the Thames-Coromandel District Council has issued a Boil Water Notice for Coromandel Town.

Heavy rain in the Coromandel area has resulted in very dirty water reaching the treatment plant. For that reason, the treatment plant has been running at reduced capacity. To continue supplying sufficient water to Coromandel Town it has been necessary to supply non-compliant water to the community. The District Health Board has been notified.

People will need to boil their drinking water for the time being until the issue is remedied.

Bring your water to a rolling boil for at least two minutes to make it safe to drink.

The boil water notice applies to all water taken from the Thames-Coromandel District Council Coromandel Town Reticulated Water Scheme.

If you swallow tap water without boiling it first, you may experience diarrhoea, stomach cramps, fever, or nausea. See your doctor as soon as possible and advise them of the boil water notice if you experience any symptoms.

If you have any queries please contact TCDC Customer Services Team on 07 868 0200.
