The number of properties in Severn Street affected by the water outage has been reduced from 250 properties to 70 (between 15-77 Severn Street).
However, those left without water to their homes will have another significant wait until service can be restored – the estimated time of repair is at least 8 hours.

Two nights in a row without water is unacceptable and very disruptive. We’re sorry for the inconvenience that this has caused and understand that it’s just not on.

Replacing the aged water pipe is currently scheduled to begin in March 2020; we’re looking into what can be done to speed the process up.

Which 'summer' are you having?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

It's been a mixed summer so far for New Zealand. Much of the country has seen record breaking temperatures, drought-conditions and scrub fires. But in recent days the West Coast and Southland have experienced heavy rains, flooding, evacuations and closed roads. Our thoughts are with affected.

Our skies have been coloured by smoke blown over from the Australian bushfires, meanwhile Wellingtonians are just stoked if they get to see the sun.

To work with the ongoing bus resource and driver shortage, four of the current suspended services will be serviced by ‘additional’ services. There’ll also be 15 more Route 2 services on the road from 10 February.

These services will have the letter ‘a’ at the end of the route number and will be provided by Mana Coach Services so the buses will look different to the usual Metlink buses which operate this route.

These trips won’t be visible on the RTI or our Metlink website timetable until 8 March, so please see the Service Update for the full list of services. www.metlink.org.nz...

Know before you go and keep up with changes as they happen. Visit Metlink.or.nz or call the Metlink team on 0800 801 700.

Media release: Unsustainable water use calls for warning

Wellington Water is calling on the residents of Wellington, Porirua and the Hutt Valley to cut back on their water use, and make sure they observe garden watering restrictions.

A prolonged dry spell, with more to come according to forecasters, has seen water use soar. Over the past four days, consumption in the four cities has peaked at 183 million litres per day (MLD), with average consumption between 172 and 180 MLD – the target maximum demand is 160 MLD.

Chief Advisor, Potable Water, Laurence Edwards says that as we enter the peak of Summer we are seeing warm, dry weather with no significant forecast for rain, and demand is increasing to unsustainable levels. “We are in a situation where demand is close to exceeding supply capacity. If we continue at this rate, we will need to implement a sprinkler ban within the next few days.”

As river supplies dry up, the aquifer and storage lakes are what keep the Wellington metropolitan water supply going.

“There will be enough water to go round if everyone does their bit,” said Laurence.

“This includes following garden watering restrictions, and water saving tips like using buckets to wash the car, or a broom to sweep the path, rather than the hose.”

Restrictions are based on the odds and evens system, which allows residents to use one unattended watering system (sprinkler, irrigation system, soaker hose), from 6-8am and 7-9pm, according to their street address and the date:

- Residents of odd numbered houses (e.g. 1, 13, 57) can water on odd numbered dates (e.g. 1st, 15th, 23rd) of the month, between 6-8am and 7-9pm only.

- Residents of even numbered houses (e.g. 2, 4, 12) can water on even numbered dates (e.g. 2nd, 6th and 24th) of the month, between 6-8am and 7-9pm only.
