Local Water Issues
Nelson City has a high quality water supply sourced from the Matai Dam and Roding river. However it does have some issues with Chlorination by-products (Haloacetic Acids, HAAs for short) at higher than recommended levels. This is a lower priority than safe drinking water. Any concerns can be resolved with carbon filtration.
For up to date information on your municipal supply, please click here and type in the name of your water supply and click search.
There are also many areas where people have individual supplies that they are responsible for maintaining.
Any water supply which is not a Town mains which meets drinking water standards should be considered a possible source of microbiological contamination. These can include bacteria like E.coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter. Viruses like Hepatitis A & E, Norovirus and Calcivirus. As well as Protozoan parasites like Giardia. As these are living organisms, they are likely to be present intermittently and the number of them present will vary. These are commonly found in rain water supplies, a surface waters, springs and shallow or unsecured bores. This can also be a concern with some water schemes, particularly irrigation schemes that some people have connected to their homes.
Chemically rain water is very good, however as it falls through the air, it dissolves in some Carbon Dioxide, which makes it slightly acidic and corrosive to metal plumbing. This is more noticeable in plastic tanks, concrete tanks can offer some protection as they raise pH slightly.
There are a good number of people on these supplies supply in the region, these often have undesirable levels of iron, manganese, hardness, Silica, low pH and or Nitrate.
Surface Water (Streams, Rivers, Creeks Dams etc)
These supplies tend to have heavy levels of sediment in them after rains and they can become discoloured from dissolved organic matter. Depending on the land they flow through, some can also have other mineral issues, like hardness and iron.
Occasional a small community may create their own water scheme to provide water to a number of houses in an area without a town supply. Some of these may leave the responsibility for drinking water safety in the hands of the home owner who has elected to connect to the scheme. These need to be tested and depending on the water source may experience some of the water issues described above.
