Hauraki District Council is playing it safe after water samples have revealed problems in two of its rural water supplies. Yesterday afternoon a precautionary boil water notice was hand delivered in person to about 100 Mackaytown households after samples showed high sediment levels in the community’s water supply. Another precautionary boil water notice was hand delivered to around 100 Kaimanawa residents this morning following the confirmation of the presence of E.coli in that network.
