Where we're at with water

Water Faucet

Tank and bore water supplies: If you rely on a roof-fed tank or bore for your water supply (that is not Council’s urban supply) please boil your drinking water as a precaution. Your supply may have been impacted by flood waters and/or wind-blown debris. Council has increased surveillance of all of its water supplies in the wake of the floods.

Council supplies:

Main urban water supply (serving Bridge Pā, Flaxmere, Hastings, Havelock North): Safe for drinking.

Clive: safe for drinking

Te Pōhue: Boil all drinking water

Waimarama: Water supply reinstated; safe for drinking

Haumoana/Te Awanga: safe for drinking

Esk ridge: Safe for drinking

Whirinaki/Esk Hills: Water supply unavailable; emergency response agencies assisting

Waipatiki: Safe for drinking

Whakatū: Safe for drinking

Waipatu: Safe for drinking

Omahu: Safe for drinking

While most of our water supplies are functioning to keep safe water flowing, we are urging residents to be restrictive in their water use and only use it for essential needs. By limiting showering bathing and other activities (clothes washing, dishwashers and toilets) we will minimise the impact on our wastewater system which is still not fully operational.

We thank the community for being so understanding as we work to restore essential services across the district.
