Christchurch water chlorination starts 26 March

Chlorination of Christchurch’s drinking water supply will start from 26 March 2018, starting with Brooklands and Kainga, as well as the Heathcote Valley. Progressively over the following few weeks the rest of the city’s supply will be treated, so we should expect water to have been treated any time from 26 March onwards. More information here:
