Important note - The Longhouse is not affected by the recent lead issues to the water supply of the Karitane/Waikouitai communities as it sits outside of the Dunedin Water Supply area as confirmed by visiting the DCC interactive map. The property also has its own water supply so luckily is unaffected by this recent event.
