Work continues on Methven drinking water supply

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Methven residents are being asked to conserve water again on Monday (May 23) during more planned work on the Methven drinking water supply. The work will begin at 7am and should be complete by 3pm.

The Ashburton District Council said contractors would be cutting in a second underground pipe at the water treatment plant so no water would be flowing into the plant, however there would be enough water in the reservoir to service the town if people used it conservatively.

Infrastructure services group manager Neil McCann said the work was being done in advance of a new treatment plant and while two new water reservoirs were under construction at the site.

“We cut in the first pipe on 13 May and the second pipe will be cut in on Monday. The work should be done in six hours, but we do ask people to conserve their water use where possible to avoid draining the reservoir. People can still have showers and flush toilets, but minimise activity on Monday morning that would use large amounts of water," he said.

”We appreciated the efforts Methven residents made last time to conserve water and we thank them in advance for doing the same on Monday.”

The work is being done by ACL and Reliant Solutions.
