Boil water notice lifted after treatment plant upgraded

A Queenstown hotel is welcoming the end of the town’s tainted water saga.

Rees Hotel chief executive Mark Rose said people had been eagerly awaiting the end of the boil water notice, lifted yesterday after nearly three months.

Staff rushed around following the Queenstown Lakes District Council announcement, removing warnings from rooms and telling guests the water was fine again.
