Oakura's water supply has been reinstated after a water main was damaged yesterday afternoon.
A contractor working on a new subdivision hit and damaged the water main that connects the town to the reservoir about 3.30pm.
Residents were warned against drinking the water before the break was repaired as they could draw dirty water through the network and into their appliances.
Contractors continued to work on the main at 7pm yesterday when the water supply was declared back to normal.
