The Team from Wellington Water


Apologies for the delayed update, we've been checking in with the busy crews to get an ETA. Water is expected to be back on at 9pm.

Thank you for your patience and apologies to all those affected.

Crews are working hard to resolve the burst and return water back to normal supply. The earliest that the water may be on again is 7.30pm. If this is expected to be longer, we will update our social channels again.


The water tanker will be driving through the streets affected to provide water to residents. Thank you for your patience.

UPDATE 3.06pm

A water tanker has been arranged to provide water to residents. This is expected to arrive at 4pm.

The planned outage in Duncan St, Tawa is expected to extend beyond 4pm due to a water main burst in Duncan St.

We currently do not have an estimated time when the water will come back on, however we will update as we get further information.

Are you struggling to find a house to buy?

Sharron Pardoe Reporter from Dominion Post

Kia ora Neighbours!
Are you struggling to find a house to buy? Tell us about it!
You're probably not alone.
With a population boom on the horizon, it appears soon it will be even more difficult: a council-commissioned assessment has found the Wellington region won't be able to keep up with housing demand with a massive shortfall predicted in the next eight years.
How much of a problem is it already?
NB please put NFP after your comment if you would not like it used in a story. Thank you!

Omāroro Open Day

The Team from Wellington Water

We’re hosting a community open day ahead of the next stage for the Omāroro pipelines project. Once built, Omāroro Reservoir will make the city’s water supply much more resilient in case of a disaster or operational failure. Right now, we’re installing the large pipes that will connect the reservoir to the existing network.

This next stage involves closing Wallace Street, Mt Cook, to traffic for a few months. A diversion will be in place via Wright St, and Adelaide Road will be the main route into the city to and from the south.

Interested? You’re welcome to attend the community drop-in session on Sunday 17 November 11am – 2pm at Massey University Executive Suite, Gate A, Wallace St. See you there.
