Water supply area changes

The Arrowtown and Lake Hayes water supply areas were amended by the Queenstown Lakes District Council's infrastructure services committee at a meeting in Wanaka last week.

The Arrowtown water supply extension applies to six properties on Centennial Ave connected during the 1980s which were already being rated, but their inclusion had not been recorded for engineering purposes. It also applies to properties in the Millbrook sub-zone, which are also connected and are being rated.

Meanwhile, the Lake Hayes water supply area will no longer serve properties that are being supplied by the private Don Andrews scheme. But is has been extended to two properties on Speargrass Flat which already have connections.

Two properties have also been added to the private unrestricted Slopehill sub-zone, which takes water from the Lake Hayes water supply. Some properties within the extended zone will have restrictions of 2.1cu m of water per day.
