On Tuesday 9 April we will carry out repairs to the wastewater system in Motueka. If you live or work in Motueka, please limit running taps and using water for anything other than your essential needs while the repairs take place – from 7.00 am to 7.00 pm.

That means not doing loads of washing, washing dishes or flushing toilets unnecessarily for the day - anything that causes water to go down the drain in your home or business.

We want to avoid any extra strain going on the wastewater network that could result in overflows. While the repairs are underway we will be using tankers to transport wastewater from the pump station to the treatment plant, rather than pumping it through pipes as usual.

Thanks for your patience and cooperation.
