Safe drinking water is Councils number one priority. In order to ensure we deliver this to our community we supply water to, we are also investing heavily in improving the safety, resilience, capacity and flexibility of our drinking water services and significant progress is being made.
Hastings to Havelock North Water Main Project
A major new water main between Hastings and Havelock North is being installed as a key part of an overall drinking water infrastructure upgrade plan. The $10 million project will see the pipe laid over 4.8 kilometres, from Sylvan Road in Hastings to Napier Rd in Havelock North, via St Aubyn St, Windsor Ave, Howard St, St George’s Rd and Crosses Rd. For more information visit the Hastings to Havelock North Water Main Project section of our website.
