One of the quick wins that has come out of the Government Inquiry into Havelock North Drinking Water evidence, is the need for planning around boil water notices. It was identified by the Hawkes Bay District Health Board, the Drinking Water Assessors and Hastings District Council that better planning and preparedness around boil water notices would have saved time in notifying residents of the need to boil water.
The Government Inquiry into Havelock North Drinking Water (stage one, Issue 8 session) (future actions to ensure a safe drinking water for Havelock North) occurred on the 12th and 13th December 2016.
