Omāroro reservoir works - water shut off

We’re progressing into the next stage of pipeline works that will connect the future Omāroro reservoir to bulk drinking water supply pipes.

Several weeks ago Wellington Water ran a trial to prepare for installing a new valve, which involved shutting off normal water supply to Wellington City for a few hours. This was to confirm that under normal demand, we’d have enough water available to allow us to drain the pipes, cut them open, install the new valves, seal everything up, and recharge the network (estimated at 15 hours).

The trial was successful – and we are planning another shutoff to complete this work tomorrow, Wednesday 6 November starting at 6am.

While we’re not expecting any outages as a result of this work, we do ask that residents are mindful of their water use.

Throughout the work, we’ll be monitoring supply and demand closely, and will inform residents on any potential supply interruptions.

Fireworks are a ton of fun but carry real risks that need to be taken seriously. If you plan on lighting some here's some tips to keep everyone in your community safe and happy.

❌ 1. Never light fireworks in dry or windy conditions.

🔥 2. Only use fireworks in wide open areas, away from flammable items such as trees, grasses, gas tanks, and wood.

💦 3. Keep a bucket of water or hose nearby.

👧 4. Children should never light fireworks themselves and need to be supervised closely at all times.

🧰 5. Keep all unlit fireworks in a secure bag or container away from any source of fire until they are ready to be used.

📞 6. Be considerate and let neighbours know if you're planning to set off fireworks. Aim to finish at a reasonable time.

🐱 7. Keep pets comfortable and secure inside. The loud booms and flashing lights can easily scare them off.

🐮 8. Avoid lighting off fireworks around farm animals and be aware of any newborns or elderly neighbours who may also be affected. If possible, change locations to somewhere that minimises any disturbances.

🌿 9. Be a tidy Kiwi and let's work together to keep New Zealand beautiful! Clean up any any rubbish and leave your spot better than you found it.
