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.

Hydrant Flushing - November

17 Nov 2020, 8:00 AM

We’ll be undertaking routine hydrant flushing in Te Kuiti, Maniaiti/Benneydale, Mokau and Piopio from Wednesday, November 18 to Friday, November 20, 2020.

While undertaking this work, we’ll make every effort to minimise the impact on supply. In the event that temporary deterioration of your water quality occurs due to flushing in your street, we recommend that you 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.
