Te Kuiti Water Supply

25 Sep 2017, 10:33 AM

A massive landslip has occurred across the Mangaokewa River upstream of the Te Kuiti township.  

The Te Kuiti Water Treatment Plant takes water from the river. It is producing drinking water to the required health standard. 

Additional treatment is required for the high levels of silt in the river water.  Some users might notice that the aesthetic qualities of the water may be different to the usual water production. It is expected that normal treatment processes be reinstated as the river conditions return to normal.

Te Kuiti water supply is currently on water conservation level 1.

We seek the cooperation of Te Kuiti residents and businesses to conserve water. Please avoid:

  • Washing vehicles,
  • Washing/water blasting of building exteriors and footpaths
  • Using hoses for cleanup

Visit our website to view our quick tips for water conservation. 

If you have concerns regarding the water supply, please contact WDC on 0800 932 4357. Council’s after hours service is available 24 hours a day – 7 days a week.
