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.
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.
Come and take part in a visual and interactive experience that showcases the history and dual heritage of Aotearoa New Zealand.
See you at Circa Plaza, Te Papa Museum on Wed 18 Dec. We're open from 3 pm to 5 pm.
FEATHERSTON & GREYTOWN
After a planned water shutdown to install new treatment equipment for Greytown's Memorial Park bore yesterday, we were restoring supply when a power cut occurred.
The power cut affected the Waiohine Treatment plant, which supplies water to both Greytown and Featherston. The Waiohine reservoirs were already quite low, as they had been meeting demand during the planned water outage. Although the Memorial Park bore was operational during the power cut, it was not meeting Greytown's demand.
We organised water tankers to supplement the water remaining in the reservoirs. Fortunately power was restored at 9.30pm. This allowed us to begin re-filling the Waiohine-fed reservoirs for Featherston and Greytown.
Thank you to all residents who are responding to the request to cut back water use, especially outdoors, and to the Greytown Fire Service for helping spread the word.
While the reservoirs are being re-filled, the total outdoor water ban (in Featherston & Greytown) is still in effect. We will look to lift this ban when operations continue as normal. We are anticipating this will be lifted tomorrow at 9am. We will confirm this tomorrow morning.
From 10 December total outdoor water ban applies in Martinborough.
