2.3 Water

Wai

Clean, safe water is essential for residents’ quality of life and wellbeing.

What we do

We ensure high-quality water is available at all times for drinking as well as other household and business uses. We are responsible for looking after the network, all new connections and making sure all statutory requirements and environmental standards are met.

The work is delivered by Capacity – an organisation that provides water services to Upper and Lower Hutt and on behalf of Porirua City Council. Greater Wellington Regional Council, which is responsible for the bulk supply of water, is currently considering joining the single delivery agency. This would ensure knowledge and ideas are shared to ensure a long term regional approach to water management.
