Media Release: Thames Coromandel District Council

This week’s storm has put pressure back on the water treatment plant in Coromandel Town. While the water is safe to drink, and there is no boil water notice currently in place, the council asks residents and visitors to conserve water where possible.

“We recovered from the last storm event, and the plant was functioning well, but when the bad weather hit us again this week, our ability to continue to produce water at a high enough rate to match demand comes under pressure,” says Bruce Hinson our Operations Group Manager.

To help maintain reservoir levels, we are tankering treated water from our water treatment plant in Matarangi to our reservoirs in Coromandel.

“All going well, we plan to be back to full production in a few days, but having the assistance of residents and visitors to conserve during this time, will be of great help,” says Mr Hinson.
