Wellington Water is close to completing its search for local water sources at parks, hospitals, and schools in metropolitan Wellington.
Wellington Water advises all drinking water in Ocean Parade, and Brendan Beach is now safe to drink.
Wellington Water has deployed a team to assist New Plymouth District Council (NPDC), following their ‘Boil Water’ emergency alert, which came into effect after there was damage to the water mains caused by a tree, as a result of Cyclone Gita last week.
"We are about to start work to replace a section of wastewater main on Waterloo Quay, near Westpac Stadium. The replacement pipe will be larger, ensuring it can handle future growth in demand, and will be less susceptible to damage caused by earthquakes."
Wellington Water is urging people to get prepared ahead of Cyclone Gita’s arrival in New Zealand, ahead of plans to activate its emergency operations centre from 6am Monday morning.
