Water Supply

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Our water supply activity provides for the environmentally safe collection, treatment and reticulation of potable water supply to certain parts of the community. A reliable and safe water supply is provided to approximately 5,750 of the Opotiki District population in Te Kaha, Opotiki, Hikutaia, Waiotahi Drifts and Ohiwa. Efficient, safe and sustainable water supplies are essential for the social, economic and environmental well-being of the District. Reliable drinking water supports public health outcomes, industry growth and development and community safety by way of providing fire fighting capacity in urban areas. ​​
