New Water Testing Depot for Wairoa
The water testing services of our Ministry of Health (MoH) approved and IANZ-accredited laboratory are now available to Wairoa residents with a new pick-up and drop-off depot located at Hawke’s Bay Regional Council's (HBRC) offices in Freyberg Street, Wairoa.
This arrangement with HBRC means as a Wairoa resident, business or school, you can now find out what's in your water, and if it's healthy to drink and bathe in (testing includes spa and pool water).
To have your water tested, simply pick up a testing kit from the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council depot in Freyberg Street in Wairoa. When you drop your water sample back it will then travel to WTHB's bacteriological water-testing and analysis laboratory in Hastings for testing.
All WTHB all our water testing is compliant with new national Drinking Water Standards, which took effect from March this year. This change followed the serious contamination of Havelock North’s water supply in 2016, which caused thousands of people throughout the region to fall ill.
Says our General Manager Cynthia Bowers,
“This is an opportunity for Wairoa residents to have access to water testing services they can rely on with WTHB being IANZ-accredited and compliant with the latest Drinking Water Standards. Once clients are aware of what is in their water, they can seek advice on the appropriate treatment.”
Test results are emailed directly to you at which point you can seek advice from plumbers or other service providers to help determine the best solution for your water going forward. This could include treatment of water tanks, spas or swimming pools, changing of pipes, or the installation of a filter.
Testing kit pick-up and water sample drop-off at HBRC on Freyberg Street in Wairoa is available weekdays between 9am and 12pm.
