Motakiora/Brook Park top section closed until further notice
For health and safety reasons, Waitomo District Council has closed the top section of Motakiora/ Brook Park for ALL recreational use until further notice.
As a result of the weekend’s heavy rainfall event, a section of track to the summit is hazardous and a large slip has taken out part of the mountain bike track, which is also popular with walkers.
There is risk of further multiple slips and damage if the rain continues.
The rotunda and toilet is still accessible, however we urge residents and users to exercise caution if entering this area.
Signage advising of the closure will be erected onsite soon. Please do not venture into the red zone.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Quick tips for water conservation

29 Sep 2015

Water Conservation is a top priority for everyone as we strive to preserve precious resources for future generations.

Achieving year-round water conservation will take a big change in behaviour - the way we use water in our everyday lives. Our target for all residents is 200 litres per person, per day. 

This means that no sprinklers are allowed to be used, but hand-held hosing is permitted.

Every effort you make to conserve water both at home and at work, will make a big difference.
