Water woes are back in Napier.

The entire city's supply is being completely chlorinated in a bid to kill E. coli, which was found in the Otatara reservoir on Friday.

Some residents have reported falling ill and frustrations with the council are bubbling.

All of the water, except for two areas, has been treated since earlier in the year following the discovery of faeces.

 "At this stage we have no option but to chlorinate the whole network," Napier City Council said on Facebook.
