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.

Hydrant Flushing

20 Oct 2020, 8:00 AM

We’ll be undertaking routine hydrant flushing in Te Kuiti, Maniaiti/Benneydale, Mokau and Piopio from Wednesday, October 21 to Friday, October 23 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.

For more information give us a call on 0800 932 4357.
