Essential work at Triangle Road Pump Station June 24

Updated 11.00am
Sunday 25 June

We’ve now completed the essential maintenance on the pump station near Triangle Road and you can use water from the taps as normal.

If you have discoloured water after 11am on Sunday, please phone us on (09) 442 2222 and select option 1 for faults. We're available 24/7.


From 10pm on Saturday 24 June, we’ll be undertaking essential maintenance at a pump station near Triangle Road. 

What do you need to know?


• No one will be without water during this work.

• Between 10.00pm on Saturday 24 June and 11.00am on Sunday 25 June, some households and businesses in western and north-western suburbs may experience temporary discolouration to their water supply. We             recommend you turn on a cold tap to check for discoloured water before drinking or doing laundry.

• While discoloured water is safe to drink, you may want to store clear drinking water in clean bottles before the work begins.

As our crews will be flushing the water pipes to push any discolouration out of the network, we expect any instances of discoloured water to be brief. If you have discoloured water after 11am on Sunday, please phone us on (09) 442 2222 and select option 1 for faults. We're available 24/7.

Why we are doing this work?


The North Harbour No. 1 watermain is at capacity during summer months and we’re carrying out the essential work near Triangle Road now to ensure we can continue to deliver a safe and reliable water supply for the northern North Shore and Rodney areas. It will also increase capacity in the water network to allow for Auckland’s growth.

While we have done a large amount of preparatory work to minimise any adverse impact on the water supply network and no one will be without water, there is a risk that this work may cause temporary discolouration to your water supply.

We apologise for any inconvenience this important work may cause.
