Rangitikei residents asked to use water responsibly
With no significant rainfall over the last few months levels at some of our reservoirs are running low. Residents are asked to use water responsibly until reservoir levels are restored. Some residents in Marton may have noticed discoloration creeping back into the water supply again, and this is because we're topping up the Marton reservoir with water from the Calico Line bore. Unfortunately the trade-off for using the Calico Line Bore is a greater chance of discoloured water. It's completely safe to drink as per the NZ Water Drinking Standards.
