Road Resealing and Maintenance Update

Our annual road resealing programme started on 7 December 2018 and will continue through to February 2019.

We are inspecting local roads and responding to reports of bleeding bitumen (tar melting), which occurs during hot weather. To report a roading issue please call us 24-7 on 0800 932 4357.

You can now view regular updates about our roading network on our website here.

Our project to upgrade to LED street light luminaires was completed in July 2018, resulting in a reduction of around 50-65% in our monthly power bill for street lighting.

Footpath repairs at the southern end of Mokau Village will begin in February.

We are upgrading the steps at the Benneydale playground on Georgetti Street to improve safety.

Work will soon start on repairing a portion of pavement on Seddon Street Te Kuiti.

Notice of Agrichemical Application

Over the next 12 months, Waitomo District Council will be carrying out a programme to control weeds using Glyphosate in the form of Roundup.

Areas to be treated are Council managed public parks, reserves, sports grounds and cemeteries located in both the urban and rural environments of the Waitomo District.

Work will be carried out by WDC’s GROWSAFE qualified applicators to ensure the safety of our staff and the public.

No Spray Register

Residents living adjacent to the Council parks and reserves may register their properties as a “No-Spray” property. Applicants for No-Spray areas will be required to maintain their boundaries to control all unwanted weeds to the standard required by WDC. Application forms to register as a “No-Spray” property may be collected from the Customer Services desk, Queen Street Te Kuiti.

Ministry of Health advice – plumbosolvency

Sometimes small traces of metal can accumulate in plumbing fittings.

Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mugful of water from your tap to remove any metals that may have dissolved from your plumbing.

This simple tip is for households on public and private water supplies. For more information visit here.

Te Kuiti Water Supply update

We are aware that the Te Kuiti Water Supply taste and odour issues are not yet resolved.

We want to assure residents that the water is regularly tested and is treated to the national Drinking Water Standards and does not pose any health risk.

The Te Kuiti Water Treatment Plant is now producing water with improved aesthetics (taste, colour, odour). However, our reservoir is full and we are working to flush the discoloured water through the reticulation network. We need to be careful with this though because the river level is low, and water conservation is crucial during this dry season. Therefore, we are asking residents to contact us on 0800 932 4357 so we can gather further information and better assess which areas of our network require further mains flushing.

We are optimising carbon dosing and pre-chlorination treatments as well, in an effort to address the taste and odour issues.

Have a Whole House Filter unit. Replaced both filters 20/12/18. We have the bad taste and odour problem already. They usually last at least 9 months at least. Is Flushing the mains causing this? Address is 1 Blackman St., TKT.
