Ben Heather Reporter from Dominion Post

Wellington City Council is short on cash and mulling a parking fees hike. Options on the table include night parking charges or expanding the CBD area of high-price parking. Or they could always just increase rates. www.stuff.co.nz...

Kia ora koutou, I am Tui Lewis and I represent the Hutt City Council on the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee, set up by the Greater Wellington Regional Council to make recommendations for maintaining and improving our taonga – our fresh and coastal waters.

I am honoured to have the privilege of serving Te Awakarangi and to support the kaitiakitanga of our special environment with the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara committee. We are looking forward to working with you to maintain and improve the quality of the water in our catchments. Growing population is placing an immense pressure on our waste and stormwater pipes. We need to fix our infrastructure to leave a healthier catchment to our children, and fixing infrastructure is costly. These are big changes, and needs to reflect our communities’ views informed by good evidence and information to find solutions that are fair and equitable.

Come and talk to me about what we can do together. Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page, and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say by following the link below.

Precautionary investigations following water quality monitoring detection at Tory St culvert

Regular water quality monitoring at the Tory St culvert has shown an increase in faecal coliforms (which can indicate the presence of wastewater) to levels that have triggered investigations by Wellington Water crews to determine the source of contamination.

The area is not a recreational swimming site, however signage will be placed as a precaution until testing indicates water quality has returned to safe levels. Sampling will also be undertaken at Oriental Bay and the Whairepo Lagoon as a precaution, however it is not expected that these areas will be impacted due to dilution.

Wellington Water's water quality monitoring programme enables rapid detection and response to contamination events. Response thresholds are deliberately set at precautionary levels in order to minimise public risk.

Updates on the situation will be provided on Wellington Water's website and social media.

Water pump

Kelly from Paparangi

Hi. I am doing a project at work with a student (I'm at teacher aide) who is making a water feature. We need a water pump in working condition for it. Do you happen to have an one that you no longer need laying around? We would love to take it off your hands if you do 😊.
