This means that the area worst affected by failures will be renewed by the end of the year Until then we will respond to pipe failures with urgency and get the pipe renewal work done as swiftly as we can. And we will make sure that our customers know what to expect along the way

Unfortunately interruptions to water supply keep happening as the water main is at the end of its life. But, Stage 3 of a permanent upgrade between Robertson and Humber Street is about to get under way in October.

Over the weekend, the water was off again on Severn Street and we are sorry we failed to inform residents via our digital channels. We appreciate this made the disruption even more frustrating.

Yet another night of heavy rain! 🌧 A reminder that overflows into waterways can occur when wastewater systems have been overloaded with water, typically after rainy or stormy weather. It is recommended you do not swim for two days following a heavy rainfall.

Today's kupu is Te Awa Kairangi (The Hutt River). Te Awa Kairangi provides about 40% of the water supply to the metropolitan Wellington region. We only take and use the water we need from the rivers in order to protect our precious taiao (environment).

As we return to Alert Level 2, our priority remains the provision of clean drinking water and safe wastewater treatment for our communities. We would ask that as a precaution you keep your distance from any of our works crews to ensure that our frontline personnel remain safe.

Check out this ragmonster that our crews had to pull out of a pumping station 🤢 This is what happens when wet wipes, paper towels, and other things that shouldn't be flushed, go down the loo 🚽 Make sure you only flush the 3P's poo, pee and (toilet) paper!
