PNCC_Logo-RGB.jpgAshhurst Water Supply Flushing

The Palmerston North City Council plans to give the Ashhurst Village water supply network a Spring clean by a 'flushing' programme.

Ashhurst water comes from a groundwater bore on Hacketts Road and meets New Zealand drinking water standards. However, residents sometimes receive discoloured water from the tap caused by the buildup of iron and manganese content.

The Council had installed a polishing station that has significantly improved the quality of the water but the deposits can still  build up over time.  The 'flushing' programme will remove as much of these deposits as possible across the entire Ashhurst water supply network section by section.

Residents in affected areas will receive a letter at least 24 hours prior to the work taking place. It is expected to start from 10th October and take a week to complete the programme.

During the flushing process,  households may find their water pressure is a bit lower, there may be some discolouration and some properties may have no water for a few hours.

For more information please contact the Council on 356 8199.
