Water is our most precious resource – we can’t make more. To the average person, water is water. But we break it down into three areas: drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater.

Thanks for letting us know about your water!

Our team is on it, so there’s no need to worry. We’re continuing to flush pipes in some parts of Kelvin Grove.

Even if your water still looks a little discoloured, it’s still safe to drink. But if you'd prefer not to, you can always head to Papaioea Park to fill up on water.

Here you can see what areas of the neighbourhood will be flushed over the next few days.

Maps shows the areas to be flushed and the dates

We’ll keep you posted.

A major Government-led reform of New Zealand's three waters is under way. We're working through understanding what it could mean for our community. More details on the three waters reform page.
