Hurunui No 1 – Rural Water Supply

17 June 2016 - 3.30pm update

The water is back on and the suction pressure is minutes away from reaching a level that will allow the Davaar pumps to run automatically.  Water may not reach consumers on the far reaches of the scheme until later tonight.

17 June 2016 - 9.10am

The cut-in of the new pipe at Fridays Culvert went well, but when the water was turned back on there was a major fitting failure at one of the main Hurunui no 1 pumps (the Davaar Booster pump).  This means that most of the properties on the scheme will not be receiving water into their tanks. 

We have a number of Utilities Officers on site to try and repair and replace the faulty fittings as soon as possible. We will update as soon as the water is back and flowing again.

We apologies for the inconvenience.
