Leak detection work in Piopio to start next week
17 Nov 2023, 8:25 AM
Waitomo District Council’s water services staff are planning to carry out water leak detection in Piopio starting next Thursday 23 November 2023.
Leak detection helps identify where there could be faults in the network and can also help determine where water loss is occurring.
The leak detection investigation will occur from midnight to 3am where low water usage occurs and there is noise reduction from road traffic.
The detection programme will not disrupt or interfere with normal usage.
Council and contractors will be using a leak detection device to listen for leaks on the water mains and tobies at property boundaries. They will not be entering properties.
If the leak is detected in the Council-owned network, repairs will be undertaken.
However, if a potential leak is detected on a private property, it will be the responsibility of the property owner to fix the leak, which Council will advise.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
