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.

Routine Hydrant Flushing 20-24 December

16 Dec 2021, 9:55 AM

We’ll be undertaking routine hydrant flushing in Te Kuiti, Maniaiti/Benneydale, Piopio and Mokau from Wednesday to Friday 20-24 December 2021. During this time, we’ll make every effort to minimise the impact on supply. If temporary deterioration occurs, we recommend 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.
