They got out there responding to surface flooding, removing blockages and pumping water away from properties that were being threatened by flooding 🌧 Also great to hear a bunch of positive feedback from residents for our folks who were out in the storm taking care of business yesterday.

Shout out to those who took our suggestions on clearing out sumps in their streets – this definitely makes a difference 🍂

⚠ PLANNED WATER OUTAGE – TUESDAY 5 MAY WANUIOMATA⚠

The Team from Wellington Water

We are connecting a new service into the water supply network in the area. This means we have to turn off the supply between 10am and 2pm, tomorrow (Tues 5 May) affecting water supply to Wise Street, Craigie Way and Jack Vaughan Grove in Wainuiomata.

We are connecting a new service into the water supply network in the area. This means we have to turn off the supply between 10am and 2pm, tomorrow (Tues 5 May) affecting water supply to Wise Street, Craigie Way and Jack Vaughan Grove in Wainuiomata.

We recommend affected properties fill up containers with water before 10am and avoid running your dishwasher and washing machine during this time. When the water supply is turned back on, it’s a good idea to open a cold tap slowly then let it run for a minute or so to clear any air bubbles that may have entered the system. Air can cause the water to turn a milky colour, but this won’t affect the taste, and should clear quickly.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused by this outage and will update you if any of the above should change.

COVID-19 Alert Level 3 - Where can I travel?

Shanna from Masterton District Council

Kia ora all, we've had a lot of questions through the Wairarapa Emergency Operations Centre about where people can travel within the "region" under Alert Level 3...and what the "region" actually is for Wairarapa!

The general rule of thumb is to keep it local as possible. … View more
Kia ora all, we've had a lot of questions through the Wairarapa Emergency Operations Centre about where people can travel within the "region" under Alert Level 3...and what the "region" actually is for Wairarapa!

The general rule of thumb is to keep it local as possible. The Wairarapa is part of the Greater Wellington "region" but you shouldn't travel further than you have to if you can avoid it.

That means you can travel to Wellington for work that cannot be done from home, or accessing essential services that you can't get locally. However, you shouldn't be travelling to Wellington to go to your favourite beach or for a change of scene.

Road management

Tania from Masterton District

You'd think if KFC can make some sort of order with having security guys for the traffic, McDonalds could do the same. Its chaos.
