The Tamatea and Parklands suburbs have been prone to higher instances of dirty water than other areas in Napier.
These neighbourhoods have had more incidents of murky water than other areas in Napier. This is because the water source here is high in naturally occurring manganese that reacts to the chlorine in the water. To solve the problem we are closing off this area from the main Napier network and giving it its own ‘mini-network’. Tamatea/Parklands will then be supplied drinking water from the Taradale bores, which are low in manganese.
We have worked with the community in the area to monitor the water and report on its quality so we can ensure our solution is working. This is a pilot programme that will potentially be used to improve other drinking water issues in Napier.
