Save water after storm damages pipe bridge says NPDC

21 February 2018

Save water. 

That’s the message from NPDC as ex-Cyclone Gita has caused a large tree to fall and destroy a pipe bridge that carries one of our biggest water pipes near the New Plymouth Water Treatment Plant yesterday afternoon. This has cut off water supply to the eastern part of the New Plymouth District and may result in outages this afternoon.

View the Emergency Water Map.

Only use water for drinking and cooking.

All big water users have been asked to stop using water.

There is a total ban on using water for gardens or outside washing, level 4 water restrictions apply.

Our team is on the ground fixing it and we have sourced a new water pipe.
