We have no expected time frame on how long this outage will last, however we will provide an update on this as soon as possible. In the meantime, crews will be providing water to impacted customers. Toilets can be used across the road in nearby buildings that aren't impacted.

This work has closed off the exit from Hunter Street onto Jervos Quay - please use an alternate route. We will advise of further traffic impact as the work continues.

During this morning’s power cut we were able still to deliver drinking water across the Wellington region and South Wairarapa. Reservoirs were able to manage the demand, and storage is recovering in reservoirs now that treatment plants are operational.

For Featherston and Greytown residents, as the reservoir that supplies your area is taking longer to recover, we would appreciate it if you could reduce your water consumption where you can. We’ll share another update when you can use water normally again. Thank you for your patience.

Power has been restored to the region, and the majority of the pumping stations and all treatment plants are back online. We are investigating the wider network to ensure everything is operating as normal.

We continue to ask the wider Wellington region to be mindful of their water consumption, and ask South Wairarapa residents to continue to reduce their water consumption and avoid flushing their toilets. Reducing demand allows the assets to operate without added pressure when they come back online.

All of the critical assets including pumping stations and treatment plants have generators in operation as part of our resilience plan. We also have mobile generators available for other pumping stations.

The sampling results published on 9 March indicated a spike in results on 1 March of 23,000cfu/100ml.

While this spike understandably caused concern in the community, we think some more context will help to address this. These figures are not uncommon across the Wellington region and across New Zealand after rain. Rain will wash pollutants into the stormwater system and will stir up pollutants that accumulate in the stormwater system over the very dry summer. This is why our advice is always to avoid swimming at our beaches following 48 hours of heavy rain.

We will be discussing these results and related matters at the Community Board meeting on Monday 16 March.

We are really grateful to the community for their interest in this work, and we’ll be providing more context for this and the test results in the future on our website: wellingtonwater.co.nz/owhiro-bay

We’re flushing out stormwater pipes in the Owhiro Bay catchment today. This is to help clean out pipes that have been affected by the plumbing faults (cross-connections) that we’ve found and fixed.

We believe there is more work to do, so we will be continuing with our investigations in the catchment.

One of the ways we investigate is through dye testing. Dye is put down the gully trap (plumbing feature that receives wastewater from the property) of a property, and if the dye comes out in the stormwater network, we know there is a plumbing fault. Dye testing will be continuing over the next few weeks.

Willis Street works nearing connection stage

The first stage of the work to connect a new wastewater pipe in Willis Street, replacing the temporary overland pipe installed after the original tunnel collapse in December, is expected to be complete by the end of March.

Wellington Water Group Manager Tonia Haskell says the final stage of pipe laying along Willis Street is being completed using trenchless methods to lay the pipe underground and below existing services at the Ghuznee Street end.

“This means we’re now approaching one of the last and most complex parts of the job, to connect the new permanent underground pipe to the network and decommission the overland pipe along Willis Street.

“To achieve this we will need to shut down the wastewater pumping stations close to the harbour that send flows up to and along the overland pipe. We’ve been doing a lot of planning for this as it is risky and at all costs, we want to avoid spilling any wastewater into the harbour.

“We need low tide, dry weather, low wastewater flows and ensuring that all existing city wastewater storage is empty so it can take the flow. We also have contingency planning in place including sucker trucks, and ensuring the old interceptor is clear to support management of the wastewater flows.”

Ms Haskell says all this is expected to take place in the week of 23 March pending having optimal conditions.

“If we get heavy rain for example, we wouldn’t be able to turn off the pump stations to disconnect the overland pipe due to the risk of overflowing in the harbour. So in that instance the work would be delayed.”

This phase of the work is expected to take between 6-8 hours, however, it will require Dixon Street between Willis and Victoria Street to be closed to through traffic for up to three days. This is to allow the underground pipe to be exposed, the connection to be made, and then the road to be reinstated. One lane of Willis Street will be opened for for local traffic, travelling one-way from Ghuznee Street entrance.

The pipe ramp will still be in place so the road cannot be used as a main thoroughfare and there will still be no parking along the section of Willis Street between Ghuznee and Dixon streets. Traffic controllers will be onsite to assist throughout.

“Once the permanent pipe is connected, we can remove the overland pipe and bring in contractors to reseal the road. We are talking with Wellington City Council now about reinstatement of the road, which we’d expect to take one to two days. The focus will then shift from Willis Street to laying new pipe in the adjoining slipway down the motorway. This is expected to be complete mid-year but will have minimal traffic impacts.”

Meanwhile, investigative drilling work is being done to determine the best approach to sealing the tunnel at the separate Dixon Street site.

“Work to drill the final boreholes will continue this week and once that is completed, we’ll be able to do a thorough geotechnical assessment of the ground conditions to allow us to complete design work.”
