Local Water Issues

The Canterbury District comes with specific local water problems. Get informed on the most common problems and how we can help you.


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.

Living organisms are likely to be present intermittently and the number of them present will vary. These are commonly found in rainwater supplies, as well as in surface waters, springs and shallow or unsecured bores.

Birds pooping on your roof are the main carriers, however its also common to find small birds, snails, vermin, and insects in your tank water in Rodney, depending on your particular rain-harvesting installation.


As with all areas, what issues are present will depend on where the water is coming from.

Rain Water
Chemically rain water 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.

Bore/Well/Spring Water
There are a good number of people on these supplies supply in the region, these often have undesirable levels of iron, manganese, hardness, Silica, low pH and Nitrate. Nitrate is becoming a particular area of concern for the region, which Ashburton and surrounds being the hardest hit with unacceptably high levels (>11.3 mg/L Nitrate-N) now commonly found, even on bores >30m deep.

Surface Water (Streams, Rivers, Creeks Dams etc)
Surface water sources are not common in this area. Those which are present tend to have heavy levels of sediment in them after rains 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, iron and Nitrate.

Town Supplies
Most town supplies have chlorine in them for our safety, but some consumers may find the taste or smell unacceptable.
We recommend that consumers check their town supply on the website link above, to ensure that they are happy with the level of compliance of the water that they are drinking.

Water Schemes
Occasionally a small community may create their own water scheme to provide water to a number of houses in an area without a town supply. Some of these may leave the responsibility for drinking water safety in the hands of the home owner who has elected to connect to the scheme. These need to be tested and depending on the water source may experience some of the water issues described above.

“Rain” water is evaporated water which falls and hits the roof before being collected in a storage tank. As the water falls through the sky it dissolves carbon dioxide, which makes it acidic.
