The multiple rain events over the last few months deposited large volumes of silt at our Waimanu Raw Water Pump Station, and as a result, desilting works are now required to remove excess silt within the pump stations to ensure that our raw water pumps can operate safely. These desilting works are crucial as operating pumps with high silt levels will result in the pumps being damaged thus causing prolonged water supply disruption.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank our customers for their patience and understanding.
