Local Water Issues
The Far North has a spread out population. Many of the town supplies are great quality, though some smaller towns may struggle for compliance.
As a result of the spread population, there are many individual supplies and small neighbourhood supplies who are responsible for their own water safety.
CHEMICAL/MINERAL/HEAVY METAL CONTAMINANTS
Most town supplies have chlorine in them for our safety, but some consumers may find the taste or smell unacceptable.
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.
Any water supply which is not a Town mains which meets drinking water standards should be considered a possible source of microbiological contamination.
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 rainwater 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 rainwater 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 not many of these supplies in the Far North, but those which are present often have undesirable levels of iron, manganese, hardness, Silica and low pH.
Those near the coast can have additional issues with salty water intrusion.
Surface Water (Streams, Rivers, Creeks Dams etc)
Surface water is a common water source in the Far North. These tend to have heavy levels of sediment in them after rain 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.
There are a number of water schemes in the Far North, like the Kerikeri Irrigation Scheme, which people can use in homes at their own risk. These often have little or no treatment and the householder is responsible for making sure it is safe to drink. These often have issues with sediment, discolouration. Other issues can include low pH and hardness.
