SEVERN STREET BURST WATER MAIN UPDATE

The Team from Wellington Water

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).

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.

Celebrate our amazing marine mammals this National Sea Week (29/2-8/3) with Project Jonah at Sustainability Trust

Together we’ll measure out a blue whale, compose whale songs, and practice saving a stranded whale (in this case Lionel, our inflatable friend!).

Project Jonah is a marine mammal welfare charity that exists for one simple reason – marine mammals desperately need our help. They are faced with many threats, including plastic pollution, fisheries by-catch, and climate change. Project Jonah’s work involves coordinating trained volunteers nationwide to help at whale strandings, as well as raising awareness of human impacts on these animals and marine education programmes.

This event will show how incredible these creatures are, and focus on raising awareness of issues facing them and some practical ways that we can help.

This is a koha-based event with all proceeds going to Project Jonah

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.
