We are aware that some residents are still having issues with the taste of their water on the Woodend supply. This started following repairs that were completed on one of the reservoirs in late June.

To resolve this issue we will be moving to use another reservoir to supply the water to Woodend.  The change over to the second reservoir should be complete by the end of Wednesday and this will resolve the problem with smell and taste of the water. This is because it will take time to clean and fill the second reservoir. We will then drain the repaired reservoir and investigate the issue further.

We want to reassure you that the water is considered safe to drink, and all sampling of water quality taken over recent weeks have been within normal and acceptable levels.

We thank the public for their patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.

The team at Compass FM are incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of super star little owl “Oscar” from Oxford Bird Rescue.

He was a huge part of Scott and Tracy’s life, visiting school as an Advocacy Owl, educating, increasing awareness for our amazing Birdlife.

Rest in Peace – Fly High wee “Oscar”

Recently Compass FM were presented with a Plaque from New Zealand Police to commemorate our 10 year anniversary, in supporting the North Canterbury Community.
