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.

Urgent water restriction in Piopio - Wednesday April 3, 2019

5 Apr 2019

UPDATE 9:38am - 5 APRIL
The urgent restriction for the Piopio Water Supply has been removed. The supply is back to normal status and the town reservoir has been replenished. 


Due to a burst pipe located on Piopio College property, the water level in the reservoir that feeds the town supply has dropped considerably overnight.

The water treatment plant is currently operating to full capacity and we are working to replenish the reservoir as soon as possible.

Piopio residents are being asked to conserve water. We will update you as soon as possible.
