Napier takes precautionary approach to positive water test
Napier City Council has this afternoon chlorinated the water in one of its reservoirs after routine testing returned a positive test for e-coli. The reservoir is the Enfield Rd reservoir and it services much of Napier including Taradale and Bay View during peak season. All other reservoirs tested on the same day returned clear results.

The latest information from our water engineering team is that the result will be released to Council by 4pm. Until then, please remember that the water is now chlorinated and is safe to drink. If you or a family member is feeling ill, please call Healthline on 0800 611 116.
