The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
The Council is considering joining the Woodend (including Tuahiwi) and Pegasus water supplies.
This would entail joining the supplies together physically and financially and discontinuing chlorination of the Pegasus water supply.
The Council has recently consulted the Woodend, Tuahiwi and Pegasus communities on a proposal to join together the Woodend and Pegasus water supplies. Following consideration of the public feedback on the proposal the Council resolved, during its meeting on 4 October 2016, to join the Pegasus and Woodend water supplies together, physically and financially.
For details of this decision and supporting documentation and summary of the consultation undertaken.
This proposal involved:
The Woodend, Tuahiwi and Pegasus communities all source their water from the same location near Gladstone Park. The water is treated using different methods to remove manganese.
The Woodend and Tuahiwi water is treated using a biological filter. Chlorine is not required as part of the biological treatment. While the treatment process works well, some manganese build-up still occurs in the reticulation system, and occasionally this leads to some discolouration of the water.
The Pegasus water is treated using chlorine and a filter to remove manganese. While the treatment process works well at removing manganese, the chlorine can have a strong taste at times, and occasionally this leads to variations in taste and odour from the supply.
