Network Tasman is planning a large-scale power outage in Golden Bay and during this time many of our wastewater pump stations will not have power.

To help us prevent wastewater overflows, please keep your indoor water use to a minimum from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm on Sunday 7 July. Any water that runs down the drain in your home or business ends up in the wastewater system.

We’re asking you to:

  • Hold off on showers or baths
  • Save your load of washing
  • Turn dishwashers off
  • Only flush the toilet if absolutely necessary

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Golden Bay Council service centre on 525 0020. More information about Network Tasman’s planned maintenance can be found online at link).
