Rain is still falling in some parts of the district but things seem to be settling down - river levels are dropping.

The slip on Waterfall Road has been cleared.

Work will soon begin to clear Freemans Road.

The water main at Ringawhati Bridge has been repaired and nearby properties now have water. The bridge will remain closed until early next week.

We're now shutting down our operations centre and do not anticipate issuing further media advisories, unless the conditions change.
If an issue does arise people should phone our contact centre on 0800 486 486
