A collapsed wastewater tunnel in the Wellington CBD means that the central city’s wastewater will begin discharging into the harbour this morning. The likely discharge points are near the dive platform, and Whairepo lagoon.

At this stage it is unknown how long this will last for, or the volumes of wastewater that will be discharged.

Wellington Water is asking all inner city residents and office workers to minimise their use of water, to reduce the load on the network and the size of the overflow.

The collapsed tunnel, beneath Willis and Dixon Streets in the CBD was being prepared for repair.

More updates will follow.
