As part of our watermain renewal project in Duncan Street, Tawa, we will be interrupting water supply for a short time.

This is scheduled to take place tomorrow from 9:00am to 1.00pm.

The water will be back on as soon as possible, but we recommend you fill up some containers with water before the time above and avoid running your dishwasher, washing machine or any appliances that use water. It is best not to use water from your hot water cylinder either as the cylinder may get damaged if the water level gets too low.


When the water supply is turned back on, it’s a good idea to open a cold tap slowly and 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.
