WATERMAIN GOES LIVE

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

On May 16 the Hunua 4 watermain will be­gin sup­ply­ing drink­ing wa­ter to parts of Mt Welling­ton, Pen­rose and the cen­tral east­ern sub­urbs. This is a ma­jor mile­stone for the 32-kilo­me­tre project, which began in 2012. The pipe­line will ul­ti­mately con­nect the reser­voirs in Re­doubt Rd, Manukau, to those in Khy­ber Pass, Grafton, and ser­vice all the com­mu­ni­ties along its route. The watermain’s pipes have di­am­e­ters rang­ing from 1.6 me­tres to 1.9 me­tres. These will sup­ply 120 mil­lion litres per day along the route, which is equiv­a­lent to 48 Olympic-sized swim­ming pools of drink­ing wa­ter. The fi­nal sec­tion is ex­pected to be fin­ished by 2020.
