Groundwork

The Team from Wellington Water

To repair a leak, it must first be found—and this can be more complicated than you might think.

In this case, infrastructure had been built over the manhole cover that would normally be used to inspect a pipe, so our team had to find another way into it.

To repair a leak, it must first be found—and this can be more complicated than you might think.

In this case, infrastructure had been built over the manhole cover that would normally be used to inspect a pipe, so our team had to find another way into it.

Here’s Foreman Mika and Drainlayer Richie feeding a CCTV camera down the pipe after the team had carefully uncovered it with a digger.

Armed with detailed images of the 30 metre long pipe, they had the information they needed to finish the job.

Hi Neighhours,

It's been a tough last few weeks, right? When life gets hard and the world gets scary, it's our loved ones we turn to for support.

But this extraordinary coronavirus pandemic is different. Many of us can't see our most special friends and whānau because we want to keep them safe, and we want to get through this as a nation by following social distancing and Covid-19 Alert Level 3 rules.

While thousands of people are returning to work, visiting friends and family outside of your bubble may still be off the cards for some time longer.

Do you have a message for someone you can't see in person? A shout out to a sibling or best friend? A much-loved and missed grandparent? A new baby you need to virtually cuddle?

Level 3 Love Letters is an opportunity to share a video message for a loved one on Stuff.

You can upload your video here so we can share it with them and New Zealand
