Now that we are moving to Level 2, the chlorination of the Richmond and Riwaka/Kaiteriteri will be stopped on Monday 18 May 2020. 

The chlorination at the start of the Level 4 lockdown was to minimise the risk of contamination occurring concurrently with the potential presence of the COVID-19 virus. We needed to minimise the risk of compromising consumer’s health whilst Covid-19 was potentially present. That risk is now diminished.
