Where your water comes from

The region’s water supply is drawn from dams, rivers, groundwater and springs
Where Auckland's water came from over the past 7 days

In the seven days to 14 April 2024, the proportion of water taken from each source to supply the metropolitan area:

Dams = 90.87%
Waikato River = 9.14%
Groundwater = 0%

That % can vary due to the levels in the storage dams, forecast rainfall, treatment plant capacity, and the cost of transmitting water to the treatment plant.
