Hutt City Council Watermain Renewals

Current status

On behalf of Hutt City Council, we are renewing an ageing watermain in Rata Street as part of a package of works to improve the resilience of the city's drinking water network.

Wellington Water, 04 912 4400

We are renewing the watermain on Rata Street from 213 Waddington Drive to 182 Rata Street, Naenae, Lower Hutt.

Work is due to start in June 2024 and is expected to take four months to complete. Hours of work will generally be between 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday with work on Saturday if required.

There will be some temporary restrictions to on-street car parking. Contractors will do their best to keep residents advised of which section of road will be affected by the following day’s work, and where to avoid parking.

Your assistance in avoiding parking in the intended work zone will help us to get the work done as quickly as possible.

Why are we doing this?

In 2022 a project assessing the state of the network, the Three Waters Renewals Project, identified a number of pipes that have reached the end of their design life or have been given a low condition grade.

 The renewal of these pipes is being fast-tracked.

This is part of our ongoing work to improve the delivery of safe drinking water to homes and businesses,  and to reduce the risk of emergency repairs and/or outages and minimise risks to public health and the environment.
