Water samples taken from the Richmond Water supply for the last three days are all clear.
The Ministry of Health has this morning confirmed that the boil water requirement can be lifted.
The testing was required as a result of recent heavy rain, when the water quality of the water from the Richmond Water Scheme had been compromised with low level contamination.
Council will continue its regular programme of monitoring and sampling water supplies.
Thank you for your co-operation.
