Poll: CHLORINE FREE WATER for Napier

Pauline from Hospital Hill

The council want your opinion. Why would we spend $178 million but still end up with chlorinated water when we could achieve exemption from mandatory chlorination if we pay extra? The current rough estimate to go fully chlorine free is an extra $50-$100million. Many Napier people suffer painful skin conditions they never had before the chlorine was added. Another part of the problem we’ve had since 2017 is that chlorine oxidizes with the manganese from some bore water and, instead of being flushed annually down the gutter, the chlorine-manganese sludge comes out the kitchen tap.
