Update: water main repairs in Welcome Bay complete

Water was restored to Welcome Bay properties around 1.30am this morning.

The supply to 850 properties had been shut down from 10pm last night to allow repairs to a damaged water main in the Waitaha Road area. 

If you experience any discoloured water this morning, run your outside tap for about 10 minutes to flush your line. If any problem persists, please contact us on 07 577 7000.

Emergency water shutdown in Welcome Bay from 10pm tonight - Monday, 6 May 6pm

A main water supply line in the Waitaha Road area has been damaged and we will be shutting down the water supply in Welcome Bay from 10pm tonight to conduct emergency repairs. The shutdown will affect a large area of Welcome Bay, impacting an estimated 850 properties. 

Tauranga City Council contractors will work overnight to get the water back up by 5am tomorrow morning. 

In the meantime, we ask that residents fill up a container for use during the night if they need it, or make alternative arrangements if they require continued water supply. If you require additional drinking water, you can contact council on 07 577 7000 to arrange this. 

If you experience any discoloured water tomorrow morning once the water is back on, run your outside tap for about 10 minutes to flush your line. If any problem persists, please contact us then on 07 577 7000.

Roads impacted with the shutdown are below. Please note that the shutdown may impact on other roads in the vicinity, and that this is therefore not a definitive list.
