Residents of Waiuku have started a petition about the quality of their water. More than 1000 people signed the petition within 48 hours, which will be delivered to Auckland Council.
They are asking Watercare to investigate and take urgent steps to improve the safety and quality of the water source and treatment.
Residents are frustrated with the amount of chlorine, which they say is neither safe or pleasant.
Currently residents are having to buy bottled water. Some are developing skin rashes whilst showering or bathing.
They are noticing limescale buildup in showers, sinks and pipes which is affecting their appliances.
