Water Supply

By: Clutha District Council  06-Dec-2011

Council provides regular supplies of both potable water for both human consumption and stock drinking water in the district via 22 urban and rural water supply schemes.

Rural Water Schemes primarily provide potable water for stock but also provide for domestic consumption. The rural schemes are Balmoral 1, Balmoral 2, Clydevale/Pomahaka, Glenkenich, Moa Flat, North Bruce, Richardson, South Bruce, Tuapeka, and Wangaloa.

Some rural schemes provide water in bulk to smaller communities and urban schemes within their area of supply. The urban supplies are Clinton (Pomahaka), Kaka Point (Richardson), Waihola (North Bruce), Benhar (South Bruce/Stirling Treatment Plant), Stirling (South Bruce/Stirling Treatment Plant), Cherry Lane (South Bruce), Heriot (Moa Flat), Waikaka and Pukeau (Glenkenich). Most of these communities have restricted supplies to consumers while one or two are unrestricted.

Urban supplies include Balclutha, Kaitangata, Lawrence, Milton, Owaka and Tapanui. With the exception of Owaka, they provide an unrestricted supply of potable water for domestic, commercial and industrial use within each scheme area.

30% of the water produced is for domestic consumption with the balance being largely used for stock water.

Fault Reporting
Please initially contact our staff, rather than our contractor or your Councillor, to report any problems with Council water supply, sewerage or stormwater systems. Your call will be passed onto our contractor for action, and also logged into our database where it will be recorded and the response can be tracked.
