Each day, we supply around 350 million litres of top-quality drinking water to the people of Auckland.

The water is drawn from dams, rivers and aquifers. Before it reaches you, we remove suspended solids, dirt particles and harmful micro-organisms.

Water pressure and flow

In normal conditions we will provide residents with:

  • water pressure of at least 200 kPa
  • a water flow rate of at least 25 litres per minute (based on 15mm residential water meter). Learn more
