Water Supply

Where our water comes from

The Council takes water from the Waiau River, to supply urban areas. The water passes through the Water Treatment Plant at Frasertown, where it is treated to the highest standard. It is then piped to reservoirs at various points for dispersal in the urban area through the network of underground pipes.

Water quality

Wairoa's water supply and distribution quality is assessed every year by the Ministry of Health.

They look at two things:

  • Water supply quality (how good is the water at the source, after any treatment)
  • Water distribution system quality (how good is the water when it arrives at the tap)

In addition, frequent testing is carried out in an IANZ-accredited laboratory located at the Water Treatment Plant.

Charges

For most, water charges are included in the rates bill. However, commercial properties and some semi-rural residents are on a metered arrangement. To find out which applies to your property, call (06)838 7309.

Council maintenance responsibilities

Wairoa District Council is responsible for maintaining the public water supply system up to and including the toby (shut-off valve) on the street boundary.

The pipework on the private side is the landowner's responsibility to maintain and repair.
