Weather Warning for Waitomo
Waitomo District is expecting a significant amount of rainfall over the next few days. Once again, this will likely have a major impact on our roads and farmland. We ask residents to please take caution and do not venture out into the weather if you do not need to. And if possible, move stock to higher ground.
Surface flooding and excess water may also slow the drainage of the stormwater and wastewater network. We are not expecting any significant impact to the network, water will just take a little longer to drain.
We will keep you updated as information comes to hand.
Stay safe.

Alternative water source project starts

9 Dec 2021, 7:57 AM

A project to investigate an alternative water source for Te Kuiti has started this week.
A drilling rig has been set-up at the eastern end of Te Kuiti Domain, and will drill to a target depth of 120m. This will take about a month.
The purpose is to locate an alternative or supplementary water source for Te Kuiti to improve the resilience of our current, single source supply.
