UPDATE: We believe tonight's issue may have been caused by the lightning this evening. The water pump issue was resolved late this afternoon. Could Kumara residents please conserve water overnight. This will allow time for the reservoir to restore its storage level and you should be back to normal tomorrow. If you do encounter further problems tomorrow, please ring the Council on 756-9010 and log a service request. Many thanks Kumara West Coast for helping spread the word!
