Water treatment

In 2018, laboratory analysis of all water supplies in Horowhenua was conducted by IANZ-accredited Environmental Laboratory Services. The analysis showed that the town water supplied to our communities contains safe levels of heavy metals – none of the results exceeded the maximum safe level of trace heavy metals allowed by the Drinking Water Standards for New Zealand. You can find out more details about the tests on our Laboratory analysis confirms Horowhenua's drinking water safe news item. Town water supplies in Horowhenua do not contain Fluoride.
