Investigations start in March 2024 in two pressure management zones in Wainuiomata: one in the Wellington Road, Wise Street and Russel Street area and one in the Hine Road and Main Road area.

Construction work installing the new pressure management systems is expected to follow in several months.

Hours of work will generally be 7:00am-5:00pm Monday to Friday. 

Work in further pressure management areas in Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt will be delivered as part of a wider regional pressure management programme.

The work involves installing pressure management systems at key locations in Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt cities.

This will allow us to gradually minimise the excess pressure in the network, reducing the risk of pipe bursts and leakage and making the water service more reliable and efficient - without adversely affecting customers' water pressure.
