A boil water is in place for businesses and properties across Queenstown following a number of confirmed local cases of illness caused by the protozoa, cryptosporidium. This affects all properties serviced by the Council’s Queenstown supply including Frankton, Quail Rise and Tucker Beach Rd, Kelvin Heights and Hanley’s Farm. Read more here.

The state of local emergency in Queenstown, originally declared on Friday morning after a severe weather event, has been lifted. However, some restrictions will remain in place to protect public safety as the focus turns to recovery. Full information here.

Shotover Bridge

Work to connect a new water and wastewater main at either end of the Shotover Bridge is now complete.

About the project

The new watermain supplies water to Frankton, and the wastewater main upgrades an existing sewerage pipe.

These upgrades were important to meet the needs of our growing district. It ensures safe and clean drinking water is flowing to our communities, and wastewater is managed safely and in a way that protects our precious environment.
