Update on the chlorination status of Papanui pump stations


Here’s an update on the chlorination status of each pump station in the Papanui area, from Councillor Mike Davidson:


These are the pump stations in or close to the Papanui ward – the current status of these pump stations are:

Grampian – Reduced chlorine dosage and identified as one of the first pump stations for remedial work so chlorine can be removed.
Grassmere – Chlorine dose not reduced, but identified as one of the first pump stations for remedial work so chlorine can be removed.
Mays – Reduced chlorine dosage and identified as one of the first pump stations for remedial work so chlorine can be removed.
Blighs – Reduced chlorine dosage.
Redwood – Chlorine dose not reduced.
Farrington – Chlorine dose not reduced, but identified as one of the first pump stations for remedial work so chlorine can be removed.
Trafalgar – Reduced chlorine dosage.
Gardiners – Not chlorinated.

Due to demands on the network the pump station closest to you may not always be supplying water to your home.

A total of 7 pump stations have been identified for the first remedial work and once completed will make 11 pump stations chlorine free – 25% of the city’s water supply.
Once the best remedial action is determined for the remaining pump stations it will be reported back to Council so these can also be progressed.
