Ministry of Health Notice

Sometimes small traces of metal can accumulate in plumbing fittings.  Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mugful of water from your tap to remove any metals that may have dissolved from your plumbing. This simple tip is for households on public and private water supplies.


Medical Dependency Register

If you or someone living with you is dependent on Council water supply for critical medical support, we recommend that you complete a Medical Dependency Form. This can can be found along with an information guide, on our website.For more information please contact our Customer Services Team on (07) 878 0800 or 0800 932 4357.
