Community and Self-Managed Water Supply

Many of the smaller communities and individual residences in our district have their own private self-managed water systems, collection tanks or stream water supplies. 

During significant weather events these systems/supplies can be comprised by flooding and/or slit. This can be due to changes in the water supply, contamination of stored water, damage to pipes, tanks, pumps, or through loss of power supply. 

Taumata Arowai has released several Information Pamphlets that these communities and residents may find useful as they detail what actions they could take following a weather event. These can be found in the links below.

Our Council is not responsible for the operation, control or management of these private water systems.
