Water safe - council

12:33 pm on 25 July 2012

Christchurch City Council is reassuring residents that their water is safe to use, after unauthorised notices advising people to boil their water were delivered to homes.

Households in the Shirley, St Albans, Mairehau and Richmond areas may have received the notice.

The council says the notice was definitely not issued by the council and the mains water is safe to drink.

However, it says some residents may notice discoloration of the water after a problem at some pump stations.
