WATER UPDATE - We are now at Level 4 water restrictions

As of Monday, 20 February, Napier is moving to Level 4 Water Restrictions. This means that businesses, including restaurants and cafes, can open for trade. However, our wastewater network cannot accept wastewater from industrial business operations.

Our teams are continually monitoring the state of the wastewater treatment plant and will get teams in to assess the damage as soon as possible.

 At Level 4, water conservation remains critical as our entire wastewater network is still running on generators, some pump stations are not yet operational and our wastewater treatment plant is currently inoperable.

Our drinking water is safe to drink.

We are urging the community to please adhere to the following:

  • Keep toilet flushing to an absolute minimum
  • Take 1 minute showers or even better, a sponge bath
  • Wash dishes by hand
  • Do not wash silt from driveways
  • Try and safe your laundry washing for a few days' time, or wash items by hand
