As the second week of lockdown comes to an end hints of a more-wild capital are beginning to show. Mayor Andy Foster has asked people to clear leaves in gutters outside their homes as council focuses on essential maintenance.

Renewals

The Team from Wellington Water

The team put in a new, bigger air valve (replacing the one just visible in the wooden chamber) then constructed a new concrete chamber and manhole cover for better service and maintenance access.
