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.
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
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
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
