Appeal to conserve water for Taihape residents

March 28, 2022

Recent high rainfall has made the water treatment at the Taihape Water Treatment Plant process more challenging.

With the river turbidity levels changing frequently at the Plant, this is hampering the ability to consistently make sufficient water to meet daily demand and fill the reservoir.

We ask Taihape residents to conserve water for the next 48 hours (from Monday 28 March) to give the reservoir a chance to refill.

The situation is expected to improve over the next two days. We will provide an update if the water conservation request needs to be extended.
