Water supply interruption from ex-cyclone Gita

20 February 2018

8pm Tuesday 20 February:

Ex-Cyclone Gita has arrived in Taranaki and strong winds have pushed a tree onto a water supply pipe just north of the New Plymouth Water treatment plant this afternoon.

It’s affected three water reservoirs which supply properties in New Plymouth, Bell Block, Waitara, Tikorangi, Onaero and Urenui.

Our repairs have been postponed overnight due to stormy conditions and our team will be back on scene at first light tomorrow.

In the meantime, we are urging everyone, both residents and high water-use customers, to reduce their water consumption. Only use what you have to.
