Pukekohe East reservoirs

Providing resilience to Auckland's drinking water supply.​

Start-finish: October 2018 - 2020 
Location: 108 Runciman Road – corner of Runciman and Rutherford Roads, Pukekohe East
Status: Construction of reservoir 1: late 2018-2020

What’s happening?

In October, we will start building a new water reservoir at 108 Runciman Road, Pukekohe East. Reservoirs are built to store water, to ensure there is enough for Aucklanders to consume. In order to meet population growth and to make sure there is enough water, we will build the first of two reservoirs during the next two years. The second reservoir will be built when needed to meet demand. To ensure the reservoirs blend into the natural environment, advance planting has been done and we will do further landscaping and planting following the construction.

What are the benefits?

The new reservoirs will:

  • Cater for increased water demand as the region’s population grows
  • Help us maintain a secure supply of water
  • Allow us to continue maintaining other parts of the water network.
