We have narrowed down the location of the issue to a 10m long concrete chamber at the Northern/Western corner of the Dixon Street/Willis Street intersection and will continue carrying out investigations to understand the extent of the issue. From this investigation we will form a construction plan to repair the concrete chamber.
We expect these works to continue throughout the day from 9am-4pm, for at least the next week. We will continue with the current traffic management, however any changes to the works area may alter traffic management. This will be advised if the case.
The leak is still affecting the inner Wellington Harbour, so we continue to warn people to stay out of the inner harbour specifically in the Whairepo Lagoon. We are continuing to update affected residents and businesses on the situation, and will update our website and social channels as more information comes to light.

You may notice Wellington Harbour looking a little bright in patches along Oriental Parade. Don't be alarmed!
We were with Clyde Quay School this morning at Freyberg Beach, showing them how we use dye testing and explaining how the stormwater network flows to waterways. We placed dye in a stormwater sump, and watched it flow out into the harbour through the stormwater system. As it was high tide, not all of the dye came out so we expect to see more green dye flowing into the harbour throughout the day.
We use dye testing as a way to investigate broken pipes, cross connections and other issues within the network. It was great to be able to share this with the students and help them learn more about where water comes from and where it goes.
The dye is completely safe for the environment, and will dissipate as the tides change.
