Drinking Water Plumbosolvency

Drinking Water Plumbosolvency Notice

Some plumbing fittings have the potential to allow minute traces of metals to accumulate in water standing in the fittings for several hours. 

Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mugful of water from your drinking-water tap each morning before use to remove any metals that may have dissolved from the plumbing fittings. 

We recommend this simple precaution for all households, including those on public and private water supplies.

Christmas Rubbish Wrap-up

Christmas rubbish wrap-up.


Westland District Council wants to remind residents about the tearable problem of unrecyclable Christmas wrapping this festive season.

The waste team says, “Where you can, try to save the wrapping and ribbons to reuse – but if you’ve got so excited to unwrap and the wrapping is torn or otherwise unusable, make sure it goes into the right bin.
