Civil defence say you no longer have to boil your water if you are in Christchurch:

Has anyone put this to the test? What colour is the water coming out of the tap and how does it taste and how does it compare to the water you drank(if any) right after the Feb earthquake?

In other Christchurch related happenings, I was looking at and the streetview has not been updated since the Feb earthquake. I was thinking maybe we could email google and ask them to do a new complete streetview update for Christchurch. I know users can upload photos but there is just too much area to cover.

I've got to be honest, I've been drinking the water from our tap for a while now (Fendalton) and it's tasted the same as it always has, no chlorine taste and no illness yet.

It tastes awful, but boiling it does seem to reduce the chlorine taste. I'm going to continue boiling for a bit regardless.
