E-coli found in Waimarama water supply
Residents in Waimarama, Hawke’s Bay, have been told to boil their water, after E-coli bacteria was detected in the public water supply.
People in Hastings District Council should boil the water before using it for “drinking, cleaning teeth, making ice, washing dishes and preparing food.”
“The council is [already] the focus of a public inquiry into how campylobacter got into their water supply last year.”
Two weeks ago, the Enfield Road Reservoir in Hawke’s Bay that supplies much of Napier was chlorinated after testing positive for E-coli.
