Tamatea/Parklands Controlled Water Area (CWA)

The Tamatea and Parklands suburbs have been prone to higher instances of dirty water than other areas in Napier.

We’ve isolated these neighbourhoods from the main Napier water network as part of the solution to fix dirty water issues. This area has been supplied by a water source high in naturally occurring manganese, which reacts to the chlorine in the water. Now with its own controlled water area, Tamatea/Parklands is supplied drinking water from the Taradale bores, which are low in manganese. The mini-network project is a pilot that will potentially be used to improve other drinking water issues in Napier.

We have worked with the community in the area to monitor the water and report on its quality so we can ensure our solution is working. We’ve used an online tool called Water Reporter to help residents log the colour, smell and pressure of their water.
