Water is the life giver of all thingsKo te wai te ora ngā mea katoa

We all need water every day – to drink, to clean with, and to play in.

We know there have been issues, but there is plenty of the work we are doing that is not visible or obvious to you. We are working to find solutions to the problems, which takes time.Council’s job is to keep our water safe, which we do through maintaining a secure drinking water network, removing and treating sewage and protecting our community from flooding.

We need to plan first, find the solutions, test them and then deliver what will work best. We are working hard to get water right.

Water is our top priority and $10.9 million more spending is planned for this year, which means we will spend just over $48 million on the water programme for the year. The funding for this extra spending is mainly coming out of our reserves (savings account) with the balance being a loan that will be part of the rates increase for 2021/22 (0.6% total rate increase, $13.30 average rates increase per household)
