This is a local Lower Hutt story. We have some of the purest aquifer water anywhere and people come from miles around to fill their bottles with pure drinking water.
No longer. Something has disturbed the aquifer water and the authorities have discovered the presence of e-Coli in the water.
As to when we get our water back this might provide the answer (seeing no one in power is telling the truth about this) -
“We probably won`t. Apparently pretty impossible if it has been breached. Its totally sterile under the ground...only ruined if it has holes put through it or if too much is sucked out and ground water is then sucked into aquifer.”

Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace shows the city's water is still fit to drink by taking a sip himself.
