Richmond Water Chlorination

Friday 20 April 2018

The water main break at Headingly Lane has been repaired. Thank you for your patience.

As a precaution, we will turn on chlorine treatment for the Richmond water supply until Monday to remove any risk of contamination.

The break did not affect the water supply to any area thanks to resilience within our network.

When the Water Comes Back On

Run Taps

You may experience fluctuations in water pressure after repairs. When the water supply is back on, we advise you to run your taps for a few minutes to clear any air from the system.


Downer is contracted to the Tasman District Council for maintaining the water network reticulation. Should you require any further information please phone:
