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.

Notice of Temporary Interruption of Water Supply - Waitete Road Te Kuiti

17 Aug 2017

WDC are progressing with the upgrade of the Te Kuiti Water Treatment Plant. Part of a main water pipe connected to the water reticulation network will be replaced as part of the current demolition of the old Water Treatment Plant Building.

There will be a temporary interruption of the water supply to Waitete Road properties on Sunday 27 August 2017, from 6.30am to 10.30am.  The water supply will not be available for approximately four hours.  Residents are advised to store drinking water for use during this period of time.

In addition to this work, we will be replacing old valves and an old fire hydrant located on Waitete Road.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and every effort will be made to minimise disruption and restore the service as soon as possible.

Affected residents will be notified directly in advance of the scheduled work.

While undertaking this work, WDC will make every effort to minimise the impact on supply. In the event that temporary deterioration of your water quality occurs, it is advisable to first run your garden tap then the others for several minutes to remove any air bubbles and to restore water clarity.  Please do not run water through in house filters before taps are running clear.

For further information please contact Waitomo District Council on 0800 932 4357.
