Waimate West water factory

Today in the afternoom when myself (Jorja) and my sister (Madaline) got home from school the water was all dirty! We were wondering what had happened? Then our dad came home from the shed to come for tea, he told us that our local water treatment place the Waimate west had unfortunately  had a flood.

That meant that we had to conserve our water that we had for the moment until  we get the problem fixed. It effects most of the people around our local area Auroa and Kaponga both in Taranaki. We have jugged most of our water up and boiled it up in the jug, to get rid of any bacteria or any bad stuff in the water.

It is not usual  for our local area to have bad floods but this is one of the worst specially as it effects our drinking water, but it has been windy lately and that may of coursed some problems and could be one of the reason's. The wind had been very annoying ing especially when dad got rang up by fonterra who was collecting our milk last night at 12:00pm that a tree had fallen down and they couldn't get past to collect our cow's milk so dad was up very late last night with the tractor on the tanker track moving the tree. 

Don't you think that the wind is annoying?!! Let me know if you get lots of floods where you live? or do you have very heavy wind where you are? Comment below.

  1. Hi Jorja,
    I hope you aren't still having to boil your water. We've had a few floods in northern England in December and some of my family were effected. They have had to move out of their homes while they dry out before they can have work done to fix their homes. It was mainly down to the amount of rainfall we had in a short space of time though, not the wind. Our Year 5 and 6 children are learning about water in their topic for the next few weeks. Thank you for sharing and keep blogging!
