Wellingtonians complain about smell, taste of tap water

From Morning Report, 6:46 am on 15 November 2022

Wellingtonians are complaining that something is smelling a little odd in the water right now.

It's tasting a bit funny too. But the Wellington Water authority says residents in the capital need not be alarmed.

They say the smelly in the water is harmless and temporary, a short-lived effect of warm weather conditions on increased volumes from a local plant.

Wellington Water chief advisor for drinking water Laurence Edwards spoke to Corin Dann.
