Drinking WaterWai-inu

Providing safe drinking water is Council’s number one priority. In order to ensure we deliver this to the communities we supply water to, we are investing heavily in improving the safety, resilience, capacity and flexibility of our drinking water infrastructure, processes and water teams. Significant progress is being made.

Hastings to Havelock North water main project

A major new water main between Hastings and Havelock North is being installed as a key part of an overall drinking water infrastructure upgrade plan. The $10 million project will see the pipe laid over 4.8 kilometres, from Sylvan Road in Hastings to Napier Rd in Havelock North, via St Aubyn St, Windsor Ave, Howard St, St George’s Rd and Crosses Rd. For more information visit the Hastings to Havelock North Water Main Project section of our website.
