We found this photo in a retro booklet all about the Waterloo Pumping Station (now known as the Waterloo Water Treatment Plant) from 1981, and had to compare it to what it looks like now!


The station opened on 15 May 1981, and was designed to use the artesian underground water resource of the Lower Hutt Valley to its maximum extent 💧

Eight wells supply water from the Waiwhetu aquifer to the Water Treatment Plant located right next to the Waterloo Train Station 🚉

This National Volunteer Week, we’re recognising all the amazing volunteers who form the backbone of emergency response in Aotearoa and support their communites every day.
THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS!
When Aotearoa faces challenging times, Kiwis always step up to support people in need. Volunteers are instrumental in ensuring that we get through, together.

“Every day, a network of 11,000 Red Cross volunteers and members across the country help us respond to disasters, settle new Kiwis, help run our shops, deliver Meals on Wheels, teach former refugees how to drive, sew curtains for families in need, and so much more. Last financial year, Red Cross volunteers gave close to 120,000 hours of their time. They are the hands and feet of almost everything we accomplish,” says Niamh Lawless, our Secretary General.

⚠️WATER OUTAGE - AVA STREET, PETONE UPDATE⚠️

Work is progressing well and it is anticipated that water will be restored at 4:00pm.
After the repair there will be some reinstatement work to be completed.

⚠️WATER OUTAGE - AVA STREET, PETONE UPDATE⚠️

Our team have been able to isolate the extent of the outage. The outage area has been reduced and now only affects Ava Street from South Street to Cuba Street and including all of Byron Street.

We expect to restore water around 5pm, and will have bottled water available between 16-18 Ava Street shortly.
All properties initially affected should have water back on now, with pressure returning to normal. When water returns there may be discolouration or have air bubbles. Please run your outside taps for a short time until this clears. Please make sure appliances that use water – washing machines, dishwashers – are switched off.

If you are still without water, please contact Hutt City Council.


Our team are investigating a burst water main at 14 Ava Street, Petone. Team are on site now.
This is affecting a wide area of Petone – Bracken, Tory, Te Ara O Paetutu, Bouverie, Lower Cuba, Jackson (Approx 200 upwards), Marine Parade, William Streets.

Most properties may still have water, although this is at a reduced pressure.

Updates to follow.
