Dirty water AGAIN

Joy from Tamatea

Hi Neighbours
Like a lot of other people my water was filthy over the last three days. As usual I ran the cold tap for about 25mins first thing til the water looked much clearer as per Council instructions. I then ran the cold tap again at lunch time into the bathroom hand basin.It was discoloured again and when i let the water out the hand basin was left with what I can only discribe as a coating of grey silt.....and I had been drinking this,,,not out of the hand basin of course but during the morning cuppa. I phoned the Council and was told that as I had only complained on two previous occasions they didn't know it was happening!!!!!! It's only been happening for over two years. I was told I should ring them every time the water was dirty so they could work out a plan and find out where the problem is I don't hold much hope of it changing things but it is said the age of miracles isn't past . So LET US ALL phone the Council every time we find our water the varying shades of brown and see what happens
Good luck in getting through on what should be very busy lines.

The Team from Ryman Healthcare Limited

Time spent in respite care can range from a single night to a few weeks. It provides a welcome break and peace of mind knowing that your loved one will receive round-the-clock care from friendly, experienced care teams.

May Kitchen knows how important it is to provide carers with a break. After visiting her husband Stuart in respite care at a Ryman village, she was tempted to move in herself! “If it was me, I think I would enjoy it because it’s just so beautiful and the food is good.”

Ryman villages provide warm and welcoming communities. Where residents can enjoy activities and outings while forming friendships along the way.
