We’re building the Omāroro reservoir, an important project to address growth and improve the city's water resilience.
This project involves constructing:
- a 35 million litre buried concrete reservoir in Prince of Wales Park in the Town Belt
- connecting it to the existing water supply with a supporting new pipeline corridor along Wallace Street
- renewing of local water supplies, stormwater pipes and wastewater pipes in the area
We are currently working along Hargreaves St and Wallace St, installing the pipelines and constructing the new corridor along Wallace Street that will connect the reservoir to the network.
This month we went and had a look at how the works are progressing and took some snaps so you can see what we’re up to. These pictures from the work in Hargreaves St show some of the crew working in the chamber installing the new bulk water pipeline.

DIY-ers are being urged to dispose of paint responsibly, after a video captured paint flowing from a storm water drain into Titahi Bay. Wellington Water said paint was found in waterways every summer. How do you you dispose of paint?
